Illinois Home Study Services
Home Study Services for Illinois Residents
Are you a resident of Illinois in need of a home study?
Are you working on an International Adoption? Sunny Ridge can provide home study services for Illinois residents.
For Illinois Domestic Adoptions, Sunny Ridge offers services to families working with other agencies or attorneys to complete their adoption.
As you may know, the home study is a required document by state governments. Prepared by Sunny Ridge, your home study will include documentation such as birth and marriage certificates, tax and income records, police and child protective services record clearance.
During the process, Sunny Ridge will gather from you information about your background, parenting practices, and reasons for adopting.
A licensed social worker from Sunny Ridge will in most cases, meet with you at the agency, and will visit your home to interview you and all members of your household. The worker will also be sure your home has no safety hazards for a child, and will write a report based on all the information received. Usually you will be issued a foster care license as part of the home study process.
The home study process is also a an excellent time for you to focus on and learn more about adoption issues. Our seasoned, professional staff will provide helpful support and education for you.
