Home Study and Post-Adoption Services
The home study, which is required for all adoptions, enables MAPS to ensure that you meet your state’s requirements and helps to prepare you for your adoption. We are a fully-accredited agency, and whether you are using MAPS for your adoption placement or are interested in home study and post placement services only, we can help. In states where MAPS is licensed to provide home study services (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont), an experienced and compassionate MAPS social worker will work closely with you to gain a better understanding of your expectations and needs and to serve as a consistent source of support for you throughout, and following, the process. (If you do not live in one of the states in which we offer home study services, we will assist you in finding a suitable home study agency near you.)
In the initial months after placement, your social worker will visit with you and your family to answer your questions, provide support services, and meet state and/or inter-country requirements for post-placement follow-up. During this post-placement period, we will guide you through the finalization/recognition court process, in many states eliminating the need for an attorney. We also help families to network with each other and will always be available to serve as a resource for adoption support.
