Massachusetts Adoption Agency Requirements
All hopeful adoptive families in Massachusetts must complete a series of background checks including FBI fingerprint clearances, local criminal background check, sexual offender register check and abuse and neglect towards children. The state also requires that families complete a home study, which is carried out by a licensed social worker. This home study ensures that the family is fully ready and able to raise a child for the next 18+ years. It ensures they are financially stable, healthy, and can offer a loving, supportive, and secure environment for a child to grow. In addition to the home study interviews, 10 hours of education are required by the Commonwealth of MA.
Adoptions With Love personally conducts these home studies and gets to know each of our families before approving them for adoption. If you would like to read more about the adoption requirements in Massachusetts, please click here.
