Becoming Recommended to Adopt
Upon completion of your training and home study, your home study will be presented to the Indiana Adoption Council for recommendation. Recommendation allows a prospective adoptive parent to:
- review child summaries (detailed reports) of children in need of foster and/or adoptive homes
- receive access a secure parent portal where additional information about their specific inquiries can be reviewed
- attend Indiana Adoption Program’s Meet & Greet events
Licensed Foster Parents
If you are a licensed foster parent with an active license in good standing with the State of Indiana, your agency may submit your home for recommendation at any time.
Recommendation for licensed foster families is valid for one year, and can be renewed annually with an updated SAFE home study.
If you are not a licensed foster parent in the State of Indiana, your home study must be presented to the Indiana Adoption Council for recommendation.
Recommendation for adoption-only families is valid for two years, and can be renewed.
