Overview of the Post Adoption Process:
The adoptive family and child meet with the social worker; the social worker prepares the post adoption report and mails it to the appropriate person/place.
During the post-adoption process, an adoption social worker follows up with the adoptive family and child to make sure that they are adjusting well and have the support/resources that they need. The social worker then prepares a written report about the adopted child, which is sent to the agency/facilitator/state (for domestic adoption) or the child’s placing agency for submission to the child’s birth country (for international adoption).
The post adoption schedule and number of post adoption visits varies depending on the facilitator/agency or state.
