Adoption services for couples adopting within Utah, Idaho and adjoining states.
Adoption can be a little overwhelming. At Forever Bound Adoption, we are here to make your adoption experience as stress free as possible. We work to develop a personal relationship with our adoptive applicants so you will feel comfortable reaching out to us whenever you have questions or need help. We start with in-person consultations, then guide you through the home study process, building your adoption profile, and the marketing experience. We are by your side through matching, placement, and finalization. We coach you on outreach opportunities, offer opportunities to associate with and learn from others in the adoption community through United for Adoption conferences, education classes and activities.
Adoption can also be a little overwhelming financially. To help our adoptive couples we offer a free financial coach that can help you, through grants and other services, raise the money needed for your adoption.

The law requires that a licensed social worker or agency conduct a home study for all individuals and couples that wish to adopt. It is common to feel overwhelmed by this process. The process includes interviews and access to your home, your documents, and other personal information. While this can be a trying process, bear in mind that this is done in the best interest of your future child. We are here to help you, and to help your family grow. Assuming that no glaring issues exist, the home study process should go smoothly. Please talk with your caseworker about any negative emotions or fears regarding the home study process.
For our returning adoptive couples, Forever Bound offers a HOME STUDY EXTENSION at a discounted price. See Estimated Adoption Fees for details.
Forever Bound Adoption is invested in facilitating positive outcomes for our adoptive families. Training for adoptive families is an essential component to prepare for a successful adoptive experience. The agency requires prospective adoptive parents to complete a minimum of 10 hours of pre-adoption training before you can include your family profile in the agency’s adoptive family website and before the agency will approve you for placement.
Legal services are required to adopt. Forever Bound Adoption contracts with the best adoption attorneys to provide the necessary legal work. With their assistance you can be assured that your adoption will be a success.
Adoption attorneys assist you in the following ways:
They are knowledgeable on state adoption laws
Set up the Finalization Hearing
File necessary paperwork with the court
Help you through the Court Finalization Process
Represent you before the judge
Finalize all court paperwork necessary to take permanent custody of the child
Handle any legal complications that may arise
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. We also require our couples to complete post-adoption training to help them learn about dealing with the most difficult challenges their adopted child may face.
Birth Parents Services
Forever Bound Adoption provides counseling for birth parents following placement. There is no cost for this service.
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.
