Adoptive Parents

Frequently Asked Questions

Can birth mothers receive living expenses?
Yes. Florida law permits adoptive parents the actual and reasonable living expenses during the pregnancy and up to a maximum of six weeks following delivery if the birth mother is unemployed, underemployed or suffering from a medically-diagnosed disability. This typically is handled through the agency.
How am I matched with a birth mother?
The birth mother usually makes a “dream family list” that identifies the qualities important to her in an adoptive family. She is then presented with several families on our list that meet her requests and who have comfort levels matching her various social and medical history. She then selects from those families. Occasionally, birth mothers prefer us to select the adoptive family, and this is done in chronological order taking into consideration social/medical situations.
What is a home study?
An independent investigation to verify your suitability as adoptive parents. They are valid for up to one year in Florida and can be updated easily. If you need assistance in obtaining a home study, Heart of Adoptions, Inc. can complete your home study or can refer you to a qualified professional if you live outside Florida. See our forms page to download our application. Our sister agency, Heart of Adoptions Alliance, Inc. handles international home studies, please visit www.heartofadoptionsalliance.com.
What is post placement supervision?
Florida law requires monthly post placement supervision visits for a minimum of 90 days and this is usually done by the individual or entity that conducted your home study. If additional visits are needed, you will be notified. Please be sure to notify your post placement provider when you receive a placement.
When can I obtain a social security card?
Not until the adoption is finalized and you receive the birth certificate. You can then apply for one at your local office.
