This checklist will help you evaluate if you meet the basic requirements to be an adoptive parent:
Are you between twenty-five & sixty years of age?
If married, have you been married for at least one year?
(some exceptions are made to this requirement)
Are you financially stable and able to meet the costs of adoption and the raising of an extra child?
Do you have a desire to parent the kinds of children available for adoption through Adoption Horizons?
Do you have a suitable and safe residence that has room for a child?
Are you able to work within an adoption time frame of one to two years from application to finalization?
Can you pass a criminal record clearance?
Are you free from substance abuse?
Do you live a life free of violence and abuse?
If married, do you have a stable marriage?
If married, are you as a couple both committed to the adoption process?
If you answered “yes” to these questions and would like more information about adoption and our services, we invite you to attend our monthly Meet-the-Agency Night.
