Adoptions From The Heart has completed thousands of Home Studies in helping families to adopt children internationally. AFTH is licensed to complete Home Studies in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
AFTH is able to complete Home Studies for Orphan (aka: I-600) cases and for Hague Convention (aka: I-800) cases once a provider agreement is established between the Primary Provider Agency and AFTH in accordance with the Universal Accreditation Act (UAA) that went into effect on July 14, 2014. If such an agreement is not already in place between AFTH and another agency, AFTH can contact the other agency to seek to establish such an agreement. If an Independent Adoption is being attempted a family must work with a Primary Provider in order to complete the adoption. In such cases AFTH may be able to suggest a Primary Provider with whom AFTH already works as a Supervised Provider.
AFTH provides education on international adoption if requested. AFTH can provide all required Post-Placement and Post-Adoption services as a Supervised Provider once an agreement with a Primary Provider has been established.
