Post Adoption

Post Adoption Services

Post Adoption Services take place once an adoption is complete. Typically, post-adoption services are to ensure the transition is going well and to answer any questions a family may have now their child is home.

What are Post Adoption Services?

Children’s House International provides post-adoption services by way of social worker visits and reports that will be required following a domestic or international adoption.

Where do you offer Post Adoption
Services?

How do you submit your
Post Adoption Reports?

When the report is completed by a social worker, a scanned final copy can be uploaded to CHI on the link below and the original can be sent to the Head office in Washington State. Please check the requirements for your country regarding the number of photos required and if the country your child is from requires an apostilled report. Your family is responsible for getting the report apostilled prior to submitting it to CHI. All photos can be uploaded at the link below along with a scanned final copy of the post adoption report. Your country may request original pictures and original post adoption reports, so please contact your case manager if you have questions.

If your family is in the annual family report phase we have templates provided below that you can download. Once you’ve completed the report you can submit the report and photos on our Submit Your Post Adoption Report page.
