Our purpose at Southern Utah Adoption is to find the strengths and
benefits you offer to a perspective adoptive child not to look for
problems in your home or family. A home study, as its name
implies, examines the dwelling of the prospective parents. Some factors
that are taken into account include the cleanliness and condition of
the home, safety, sanitation, and the neighborhood
where the home is located. Factors pertaining to the
individual family members includes their desire to adopt,
their understanding of the relationship between adoptive parents and
children, and their openness to addressing the unique issues associated
with adoption. If there are any concerns or issues to be
resolved, we will be specific and clear as to what would need to happen
to qualify and receive an approved home study.
