How long to does it take?
The average length of time is 6 weeks, but can be shorter or longer depending on the completion time of the needed documents.

Will FUN work with the placement agency I selected?

Can a family request information in regards to: The number of its adoption placements per year for the prior three calendar years, and the number and percentage of those placements that remain intact, are disrupted, or have been dissolved as of the time the information is provided; The number of parents who apply to adopt on a yearly basis, based on data for the prior three calendar years; and the number of children eligible for adoption and awaiting an adoptive placement referral via the agency or person?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Families United Network is a home study only agency, meaning we do not have any data in regards to the above information. This can be requested of the placing agency. If Families United Network were to function as a primary provider, we would disclose upon request the information per Hague Standard 96.39 (b).  

Should I collect paperwork in advance?
No, it is always best speak to an agency representative before you begin, as several documents can expire if collected too soon.

Must I attend training?
Our agency offers online training for domestic and international families. We also offer PRIDE training sessions at our Mt Joy office, which families may attend if needed.
