international home study
Like specialists in the medical or financial fields, we specialize in completing home studies (also called preplacement assessments), the first step in any adoption. We serve clients throughout all of North Carolina with our social workers in:

  • Charlotte
  • Raleigh
  • Greensboro
  • Hendersonville
  • Williamston / Outer Banks
  • Hope Mills / Fayetteville
  • Asheville / Weaverville
  • Black Mountain
  • Chapel Hill
  • Durham
  • Greenville / Winterville
  • Clemmons
  • Wilmington
  • Four Oaks
  • Cary
  • Wake Forest
Our goal is to provide you with a home study that is prompt (sometimes in as quickly as 1-2 weeks), concise, comprehensive, and which satisfies all international and domestic adoption requirements. Since we focus on the homestudy, we have become experts in meeting all of the different regulations governing this portion of the adoption process. Let us help you navigate through the adoption maze, and bring you one step closer to your new family.

For the last five years, Carolina Hope Christian Adoption Agency has referred North Carolina families to Nathanson Adoption Services. Helene Nathanson and the staff are warm and caring, and our adoptive families have commented on how comfortable the staff makes them feel during the home study process. Not only are families pleased with the process itself, but the home studies are completed in a timely manner, allowing families to receive approval from BCIS more quickly.

Carolina Hope will continue to recommend Nathanson Adoption Services as an agency because of their integrity, their ability to write an excellent home study in a short period of time, and the way they advocate for the family throughout the adoption process.

We appreciate that there are many different kinds of wonderful families who can offer a child a loving and stable home. We can help ease the transition from paperwork to parenthood.

After two long years of waiting and working with another North Carolina agency for the adoption of our second child, we found ourselves in the terrible situation of having our home study revoked weeks before she was due to be born.

After a glowing recommendation from another client, we contacted Nathanson Adoption Services with our dilemma. Nathanson Adoption Services was more than accommodating, coming to our home that same afternoon to begin the home study process again. With a lot of scrambling on both our parts, Nathanson Adoption Services was able to get our home study completed by the time our daughter was born!

Without your belief in us and your perseverance we would not have the lovely 10-month-old girl in our home today! We are indebted to you and will never forget the extra effort you were willing to make for us. We would and have recommended you and your agency to anyone wishing to pursue adoption. You are a genuine, caring group of people that are in this business for one reason only, creating families through adoption.

Helene and her staff are wonderful. I feel as though we have new friends for life...and we do. 100% efficient and professional with a heart. Not only did she do our homestudy perfectly, Helene gave us some wonderful personal advice for bonding and attachment that we utilize today. Our angel from China is happy, healthy and thriving. We highly recommend Nathanson Adoption Services to anyone considering adoption.
