Adoption Program

Adoption Support

  • Considering placing your child for adoption? Find out your alternatives and if appropriate, get referrals to service providers. You can also give up your parental rights to the agency by signing a legal form called an entrustment agreement.
  • Looking for a child to adopt? Find out if your home meets the needs of one of the children in our custody.
  • Are you caring for a child placed in your home by the child's parent? We offer complete adoptive home studies for the court. Fees are charged for these home studies based on income and family size. The child can be a relative, non-relative, or a stepchild.
  • Are you interested in fostering, and possibly adopting, a child? We offer complete dual foster/adoptive home studies.
  • Are you looking for information about your birth parents? We share non-identifying information from adoption records when requested by an adult who was adopted in Chesapeake, Virginia as a child or when the adult was adopted in Chesapeake, Virginia and the adoption record is sent to our agency.

Interagency Support

  • Conduct adoptive home studies on parents residing in Chesapeake, Virginia when requested by an agency from another state for a specific child in the custody of a state agency.
