FAQ
  Adoption
I'm ready to begin the adoption process. What should I do first?
 
Answer:
Families and individuals interested in adoption must be approved through a family assessment (also known as the adoption home study) before a child can be placed in their home. The family assessment must be completed by a licensed child-placing agency. (Licensed child-placing agency is a private adoption agency or a local Department of Human Services).
