We consider ourselves partners in your adoption story and take pride in offering you ongoing contact and support, even after your home study is completed.  Never pay hourly for assistance after your study is completed!

We are a team of adoption caseworkers who specialize in the preparation of domestic and international adoption home studies, annual home study updates, post-placement supervision, and birth parent services.

We are committed to providing ongoing contact and assistance while you complete your adoption story, and would never charge you additional fees for our ongoing support. Whether it’s writing a birth parent letter or profile, establishing contact with an expectant parent, creating a plan for openness, or enduring an uncertain wait, the professionals with Utah Adoption Specialists are excited to support you in your journey. Utah Adoption Specialists can also attend and moderate face-to-face visits between our clients and birth parents. These vital casework services are always free!

We are not a child-placing agency. We have a wide support network of referrals for agency-related services, should you need them.

Birth Parent Relinquishments

Per Utah State Law, in a private adoption a birth parent may relinquish in court or in front of a court appointed commissioner. When your attorney determines it best for birth parents to relinquish in front of a court appointed commissioner, one of our workers can be appointed. We will then coordinate with your attorney to handle all of the relinquishment planning and execution. We will meet your birth parent(s) at the hospital or their chosen location to execute the legal documents. Each $300

Birth Parent Expense Management

Reasonable birth parent expenses may be covered by the adoptive couple during the birth mother’s pregnancy and for her confinement period (6-8 weeks post birth). If your birth parents need living expenses and/or medical expenses paid, Utah Adoption Specialists can help facilitate the payment of expenses and transfer of funds for you in cooperation with your attorney. Hourly $70
