Home Study Consultation
Domestic Home Study/Update
We currently offer post-placement supervision for families residing in Florida who have completed a domestic adoptive placement anywhere in the United States. Our licensed clinical social workers will collaborate with your adoption entity in order to provide necessary recommendations to the courts and ensure all regulations are met. Your counselor will complete required family visits and reports in order to be eligible to finalize your child's adoption. Education and guidance necessary to ensure your family is adjusting well and forming healthy attachments will also be provided.
Expectant/Birth Parent Counseling & Match Services
Match Support & Counseling
Whether you are an expectant parent or prospective adoptive parent, we can provide emotional support and guidance throughout an adoptive match. Our social workers will collaborate with both the prospective birth and adoptive parents to guide you through the challenging concerns and steps throughout the process. We will help facilitate meet ups to help you get to know one another while also fostering the ability to have direct contact with one another. We help prepare for the hospital stay, discuss type and amount of contact you plan to have with one another, and be a support for all members of the adoption triad. We offer grief counseling to expectant and birthparents and offer support and match updates to prospective adoptive parents. We also work with your adoption attorney or agency to provide documentation necessary for the placement
and legal process.
We offer individual and family counseling to address post-adoption concerns and issues for any member of the adoption triad. Whether you need guidance on talking to your child about his/her adoption story, or you are trying to navigate ongoing contact with your child's birth family we are here to help! We can also provide assistance with managing undesired behaviors or ensuring your family is developing a healthy and secure attachment to one another. Our approach will be unique to each family depending on your situation and specific needs; however, we often utilize attachment-based counseling and family building techniques specific to adoption needs and/or behavioral modification techniques.
