We know you have a lot of options when it comes to picking a home study provider. Why use a private home study provider versus an agency? Well here are a few pros to this option!

1) Once your home study is complete through Utah Adoption Specialists, it is yours. We release the final copy to you and you can then use it in any number of settings- to get listed on profile hosting websites, for a private adoption, or through any number of agencies! Why lock yourself into one route when you can explore multiple ways at once to build your family?

2) Your caseworker at Utah Adoption Specialists will be there to hold your hand through the duration of the process. Unsure whether private or agency adoption is right for you? We support both routes and can help you look at the pros and cons of both ways. Remember that our casework services are ALWAYS free with your home study. We have compiled a lot of wonderful resources that we are happy to share with our clients, including attorney referral lists, an agency PowerPoint analyzing every agency in Utah, profile building tips, birth parent letter advice, etc.

3) We know that the cost of adoption is a big concern for many. At $700, our home study costs less than if you were to obtain one through most agencies in Utah. Even if you have a specific agency in mind, you can save costs up front by obtaining a private home study and having it released to them. Our caseworkers are fast and efficient at getting the home study to you in a timely manner!
