Homestudy and Post-Placement


A Family in Bloom Adoption completes home studies for adoptive families in our own agency’s programs, for those who reside in Colorado. We supervise the home studies for out-of-state international adoptive families, which are completed by approved partner agencies.

The cost for a full home study is $3000 and an updated home study is $1750. The State of Colorado also requires a fee of $250 for a review of each international home study before it can be submitted to US Immigration.


A Family in Bloom Adoption provides post-placement services for domestic and international adoptions. Domestic adoptions and those international adoptions not finalized abroad, require home visits and reports for court finalization. International adoptions not finalized abroad will also involve some home visits and reports, depending on agency requirements for ethically sound practices and foreign country requirements. Our agency’s formula for our Colorado families for all types of adoptions is: $250 per home visit and $250 per report.

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are
From the song “We Are” by Ysaye M Barnwell
