Preparing for Your Home Study

The point of a home study is to determine if you and your partner can provide a safe, comfortable, and loving environment for a child. While a home study may seem intimidating, it could also be a great chance for you to show your personality as well as ask the adoption agency any questions you have.

During your home study, remember to:

  • Be prepared to answer personal questions
  • Be prepared to answer questions with and without your partner
  • Be prepared for an agency to make a home visit

During a home study, your personal life may be reviewed in-depth. Don't be intimidated by this! You will be asked questions regarding your background, job, financial state, relationship with your partner, and how you would raise your child. But remember, questioning with agencies can be a two-way street. It is a great opportunity to ask questions and retain as much information as possible.
