How long does it take?
An adoptive home study is usually completed within 6-8 weeks. This timeframe depends on many factors that are within the client’s control. A home study may be expedited in order to provide security and stability to a waiting child.
What are the costs involved?
Overall costs are similar when considering domestic or international adoption. It is difficult to accurately quantify costs; however we can provide information about types of costs involved. They may vary due to specifics of the individual adoption. Please contact us for our fee schedule.
Why do women make adoption plans for their children?
Women who consider adoption plans love their children. They feel very strongly that it is their responsibility to provide for them. They recognize that at this particular time in their lives they are not able to provide all that they believe their child needs and deserves. They search for an adoptive family to provide what they cannot provide for their child. Women who make adoption plans focus on their child’s needs, before their own desires. These women are looking out for their child—a true act of sacrificial love.
Do you provide services to expectant parents?

ADOPTIONS OF INDIANA provides individual, couples, group, and family counseling, matching, and placement services to women and men considering an adoption plan.
