Post Placement Services

Post Placement Adoption Reports

Post-placement report compliance has a significant impact on international adoption in each of the countries that choose to place children with families in the United States. It is very important to the officials overseas to know that children placed in the U.S. are well cared for and loved, and that families are receiving appropriate support. Many countries require reports from 1 to 5 years after placement.

Hope’s Promise can complete individual post placement reports for adoptive families living in Colorado. This service is $350.00 per visit/report. A qualified worker will complete a home visit, gather needed documentation, provide support and resources to your family, and write the report in the format required by your placing agency/country of adoption before forwarding to your placing agency.

Adoption finalization/validation

Hope’s Promise can assist families living in Colorado with the U.S. re-adoption/validation of their international adoption. Re-adoption/validation is an important step in the post adoption process. It secures the recognition of a legal parent-child relationship under U.S. law, thus eliminating reliance on the ongoing validity of adoption laws in the child’s country of origin. It allows the child to have U.S. issued documentation of their adoption and birth and in many states, re-adoption is the first step toward obtaining a state birth certificate and legal name change. For more information please email [email protected]
