A Vital Component of International Adoption
Children’s Home is committed to adhering to the requirements of each country program. We work diligently to collect, review and send post-placement/post-adoption reports.
“Post-adoption reports to the children’s countries of origin not only demonstrate U.S. families’ commitment to adopted children’s welfare but also help intercountry adoption programs remain open as a viable option for children who cannot find permanency in their countries of birth.”
-The Office of Children’s Issues, U.S. State Department
Country Specific requirements & instructions
Reporting requirements vary greatly by country. Initial reports must be prepared by a licensed social worker. Additional reports may be required during a period of self-reporting which often continues for years after an adoptive placement. Timely submission is critical to fulfilling the requirements set forth by the country.
If you have questions about your post adoption reporting requirements, please email the contact listed under the country through which you adopted or [email protected].
