Completing Your Required Embryo Adoption Home Study

Every adoption requires a family evaluation/home study.

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