Pembroke Pines Adoption Home Study Providers
Adoptive parents must meet a few requirements before they are approved for placement with a child — and the adoption home study can be the most overwhelming step.
An adoption home study is essentially an overview of your life, your home and your readiness to become parents. During this process, a social worker will visit your home and interview you and your family members. They will help ensure you are prepared for an adoption placement. Don’t worry — they want you to succeed!
As a Florida-licensed agency, we can complete your adoption home study. We’ll guide through every step, whether or not you’re working with our agency for placement. You will find that many other agencies are not licensed to provide services for the home study.
American Adoptions of Florida is here to make your Pembroke Pines adoption home study as easy as possible. Want to learn more? Request free information online.
Pembroke Pines Hospitals for Prenatal and Maternity Care and Delivery
If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and have decided that placing your child for adoption in Pembroke Pines is right for you, you’ll have a lot of choices to make. You will be in charge of every aspect of your adoption plan — and that includes everything about your delivery experience, too.
With your agency specialist, you will create a hospital plan, detailing aspects like who will be in the delivery room, who will hold your child first, how much time you want alone with your baby and more. There are no “right” answers to these questions; you’ll get to decide what’s “right” for you.
Part of your hospital plan involves choosing a local hospital to deliver at. You will have a few options:
- Memorial Hospital Miramar
- Memorial Hospital West
- Memorial Regional Hospital
- Plantation General Hospital
Remember: All of your medical and pregnancy-related costs will be covered by our agency and the adoptive parents that you choose for your baby.
Pembroke Pines Courts for Adoption Finalization
When you’re an adoptive parent, you’ll need to complete a few legal steps after placement before your child is officially part of your family.
During the months after placement, your home study provider may follow up with post-placement visits. These assess how well your family and the baby are adjusting to life together. After these post-placement visits, your adoption paperwork will be presented to a judge during an adoption finalization hearing. Typically, you’ll be present at this hearing, too.
Once your adoption has been approved, the judge will issue a final decree of adoption — and your child will be an official member of your family!
A Pembroke Pines adoption finalization will usually take place at the Broward County Court.
