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.

It was wonderful working with Helene Nathanson, She really helped us determine what type of adoption was best for us. Now we have Rosie, who we know was meant to be our daughter.

We chose Nathanson Adoption Services because of its reputation for providing outstanding adoption related services. Helene Nathanson sat down with us and made us feel like we had known her all our lives--making it so easy to share the personal information that is required for the home study. Her meetings with us also included adoption education and counseling. This education and couseling along with the compassion and respect that Helene showed us made us feel very comfortable and confident that pursuing an adoption was right for us.

Thank you for everything you did to help bring Austin into our family. We feel so fortunate to have met you, because you helped make our two year search for Austin something that we could handle. We admire the work you do, and thank you for doing it.
