What is the placement period?

After the Home Study

Once the home study is successfully completed, the parents are ready to be matched with a child. This is the placement period. The placement period can last varying lengths of time depending on the time it takes to find a match. Parents adopting domestically may be searching for prospective birth parents through a number of different ways. Parents pursuing a foster care adoption may be able to view information about the children who are available for placement. Parents adopting internationally may receive referral of a child within a few months to a year or more.
