Child & Home Study Associates - www.chsadoptions.org
Child and Home Study Associates strives to make the adoption home study process as comfortable as possible for our clients. We are not looking to “rule you out.” We view the home study process as one in which we prepare you for the adoption process, and for becoming adoptive parents by focusing on education and support throughout the adoption process. We enjoy positive feedback from our clients who often find that the home study process has been very helpful to them with understanding birthparents, learning how to talk with their child about adoption in the future, and how to address questions and concerns from their families and friends. We meet with you in our office to provide you with pre-adoption education, and we address your questions. We are required to do a home visit, but we do not do a “white glove” inspection! We simply come to continue the education and interview process in the comfort of your home
We have been providing adoption home study and post-placement supervision services to many couples using ANA Adoptions services for over 15 years. We can certainly attest to how thrilled ANA clients are with the professional and client-centered services they provides. When prospective clients call us for consultation services and resources for placement agencies, we are happy to refer them to ANA Adoptions and their Director, Andrea Totaro.
Our clients who use ANA Adoptions enjoy working closely with Andrea and benefit from her professional and wise guidance, as well as her sensitivity and dedication to meeting the needs of birthparents and adoptive parents. ANA clients enjoy the personalized attention throughout the adoption process from the “match” until the adoption is finalized that they receive from Andrea. Many other agencies cannot provide this kind of attention. Most of our clients using ANA Adoptions are successful with the match/placement of a baby within one year, and come to feel that their family and their baby were meant for each other.
