Independent Adoptions

Are you planning to adopt a child from a country that Welcome House doesn't work in? Are you adopting privately within the United States? If so, Welcome House would be happy to work with your family to complete the home study and post placement requirements of the adoption process.

You will work with another adoption agency for all other services including meeting the requirements of the sending country, receiving a referral of a child and completing the adoption process in that country.

Click to read the Welcome House Adoption Guide for detailed information about adopting independently.

For more information about adopting a child or to begin your adoption journey, contact a program coordinator at
