Jacksonville adoption home study
You are preparing for your Jacksonville adoption home study and you are researching what information you need to collect. However, you have some questions because each document comes with different requirements or circumstances. For example, you see that you need to get five reference letters but you need them from four non-family members and one needs to be from your employer if you’ve been employed in the past five years with any place that works with children. You also need to verify your employment through your employer and if you are self-employed you need to have the documents filled out by your accountant.
Gathering and collecting all this information will feel tedious. The biggest mistake first time adopting parents make is that they look at the workload and think they have plenty of time. While it’s true you cannot rush the entire process, it does go by faster than you think. You do not want to limit your time because you procrastinated. Remember, the paperwork you need to do might be quick and simple, but when you have to rely on people for financial documents, criminal background checks and medical reports, it can take a while to gather all that information because you are waiting on them.
