What are the most important issues adoption placement agencies look at?
In our experience, social workers (who interviewed us all three times) wanted to know:
*if we would be committed to continue the counseling/therapy for all three children,
*if we would provide religious education,
*what our disciplinary styles were like,
*how we would handle the various behaviors the children were exhibiting (i.e. sexual),
*if we had other children in our home (it was suggested for our three that we have no other children so we could concentrate on them),
*if one parent was able to stay home with the youngest child if he did not go into school right away,
*they asked if we were committed to their future education, and would we have a problem if the kids chose a job rather than college.
*they inquired about pets in our home, and questioned if one child was allergic to an animal, would we be willing to part with that animal,
*they also requested that we adhere to the court orders and agree to a closed adoption (where the kids do not have contact with their birth parents).
*They also asked questions about our jobs and our education background. They were impressed that both my husband and I had secure, full-time careers that we enjoyed. They were also impressed that we both have advanced degrees.
Our interviews were low-stress and more like a conversation about "what would your life be like with these three kids"...it was not intimidating at all.
I hope this helps!
