Adoption Finalization

Finalization is the legal process that seals the deal. It is a court process that many people find very moving as the baby becomes irrevocably yours.

It usually takes 3 to 6 months to reach the finalization phase. Between placement and finalization, the social worker who did your home study will do periodic home visits to insure everything is going well. Usually, this only happens two or three times.

At finalization, your child officially takes your name, making the adoption process complete. Congratulations, Mom and Dad!
