Post Placement Services

Adoption is a life-long process for everyone involved. Forever Bound Adoption provides post-placement care for birth parents, adoptees and adoptive parents.

Adoptive Parent Services

The laws of your state may require a written evaluation of the placement of a child with a family. The evaluation serves to ensure that the placement is within the child’s best interest. If you adopt a child through Forever Bound Adoption, we will make sure your family receives the necessary post-placement care and services.

Adoptee Services

Adoptive families and adopted children may, at different times throughout their lives, benefit from counseling. Forever Bound Adoption will connect you and your family with whatever resources you may need.

Adoption Financing Options

ADOPTION FINANCIAL AID & GRANTS
A number of organizations provide financial aid and grants to adoptive families. We have collected information about such organizations to help you find the resources that meet your family’s needs.

EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
Many employers offer adoption benefits. If your employer does not offer adoption benefits, your company might be willing to consider becoming a more adoption friendly workplace. Speak with your HR department to determine what benefits your employer offers. If benefits are available, be sure to use them! If not, consider providing your employer with an Adoption Friendly Workplace kit from the Dave Thomas Foundation.

CREATE A PAYMENT TIMELINE
A payment timeline allows agency fees and adoption costs to be staggered over the course of the adoption process, enabling you to plan ahead for costs, but making it unnecessary to have all of the fees in savings when you begin the process. The fees are broken down and collected in increments, with the majority of the costs due at, or shortly after, the time you receive referral information about a child. The entire amount will need to be paid at or before the time of placement.
