In its 33rd year of operation, Child and Home Study Associates served over 147 families. Forty-six home studies were completed this fiscal year. There are a number of families currently in the home study process. Post-placement supervision services were provided for 107 families. All of this work has involved the placement of 45 children. Please note that there has been a significant decrease in all international adoptions due to various changes in international programs. This decrease has impacted all agencies.
Licensed in three states, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey, Child and Home Study Associates continues to provide home study services, post-placement services and counseling services to couples and singles who wish to adopt both domestically and internationally. We also provide home studies for second parent adoptions and for embryo adoptions. Child and Home Study Associates works closely with p lacing agencies and with adoption attorneys to insure that our reports meet agency and country requirements, as well as those of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. Child and Home Study Associates works cooperatively with several placing agencies accredited under the Hague Convention for international adoptions from Hague countries. For clients who are still making decisions about the type of adoption and resources with which to work, we have an active consultation service which can focus on resources and help make decisions appropriate to clients' needs.
