Completing Your Required Embryo Adoption Home Study

Every adoption requires the completion of an adoption home study.

At Snowflakes, we follow the best practices of adoption and therefore we require an adoption home study or family evaluation to be completed by the adopting family. We believe the donor, adopter and children will benefit and are protected by the home study process.

An adoption home study consists of an evaluation and educational components, along with personal meetings with an home study provider and various background checks. This process usually takes about two to three months to complete. Adoptive families receive the education necessary for success in raising adopted children and communicating their child’s unique snowflake baby adoption journey in an appropriate and loving manner.

Embryo donors families have confidence that the adoptive family has been appropriately vetted and is a safe and loving family. Snowflakes provides a home study service that is available in all 50 states and internationally.
