Adoption and the importance of the home study
If you are hoping to adopt within the United States, families must have an approved home study before being placed with a child. Obtaining a home study can be a lengthy process so it is important to be armed with information and be prepared for the home study visit.
What is a home study?
A home study is an in depth look at your family and your home. Criminal background checks at the state and federal level are done along with verification of income, birth, and marriage certificates. A social worker collects these documents and also has you fill out parenting questionnaires to learn your morals and values as a family. Once all of the documentation is completed, the social worker will visit with your family in the home and will ask you questions regarding your marriage, lifestyle, hobbies, work, parenting, and family values as well as survey your house to ensure the child will be safe in your home. After the home visit, the social worker will write a lengthy pre placement report for the court stating if you are fit parents and his/or her recommendations for the child being placed in the home.
How do I prepare for a home study?
Preparing for the home study is very important and your preparation will help the process go as smoothly as possible. Below are a few tips to help you through the home study process.
Preparing for the home study and arming yourself with information will help ease your worries about the home study visit. Your Adoption Gateway requires that you submit an official business letter from your adoption agency, attorney or adoption professional stating that you have an up to date and approved home study, and approval to advertise with our company. Please email the business letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive it, your membership with us will be activated.

Support Your Family with Essential Oils
Our family uses Young Living essential oils because they produce the most authentic and highest quality essential oils on the marketplace. Young Living essential oils support the systems of our body at the cellular level. They are 100% therapeutic grade and they support these body systems: muscular and skeletal, cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive, respiratory, immune, nervous system and emotions, excretory and integumentary.
A great guide for you to explore essential oil use for the whole family, is “Essential Oils Desk Reference,” by Life Science Publishing.
For Infants (6+ Months)
Usage of essential oils is highly individualized by family; however, most babies under six months generally do not need essential oils. They need breast milk or formula, the love of their mother and father, and lots of snuggles! Many essential oils are appropriate for use with infants 6+ months and children, and they should be diluted prior to use. It is recommended by Young Living to use a carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, etc). A carrier oil simply means that the essential oil is diluted and carried into the body by the fruit based oils. One drop of essential oil per 4 teaspoons of carrier oil is a good place to start. Apply to the bottom of feet and apply socks or apply on their back. Just to name a few, moms love Young Living’s Lavender, DiGize, SleepyIze, RutaVala, Gentle Baby and Peace & Calming oils for their little ones.
A great resource for your essential oil use during pregnancy, infancy, and beyond, is the book, “Gentle Babies,” by Debra Raybern.
