Our agency is able to complete a home study for any country currently open for adoption. A home study can be conducted anywhere within the state of Illinois.

Primary Provider Services

Our Hague Accreditation allows us to act as an Adoption Service Provider (ASP) for international adoptions, from both Hague and non-Hague countries. Every international adoption (whether Hague or Non-Hague country) requires an Accredited Adoption Services Provider to serve as the Primary Provider. This program is primarily for parent initiated and independent adoptions.
