We do international adoption in all 50 states!

If you don’t live near a Holt branch office, we partner with a reputable homestudy agency for that portion of your adoption.

In some states, we can also provide homestudy services for families adopting through another agency

If you already have a homestudy, contact us to see if we can work with your homestudy agency.

Homestudy services are available whether working with Holt or another adoption agency

Before you can be approved to adopt, a social worker in your state needs to assess your family and prepare a written report about you. After your child is adopted, the last steps in the process will be a series of reports detailing how your child is adjusting to your family, also completed by a local social worker. Whether you are adopting through Holt or another agency, we can provide services to your family.

Our U.S. Adoption Programs

Interstate Adoption Support

Holt serves hopeful adoptive families living in the 13 states served by our 3 branch offices. We can provide homestudies, adoption support and referrals for families wishing to adopt an infant born in the U.S.

What Makes Holt Different?

Our branch social workers take a caring and individualized approach with each family we serve. We want to support you and your family throughout your adoption journey.

number 2 in a circle

One of our top priorities is connecting you with the right resources to successfully navigate your adoption process. Whether you’re already working with an agency or attorney — or you’re looking for referrals for domestic infant adoption placement services — we’ll get you connected with the right resources and ensure your homestudy process prepares you for the next steps.

number 3 in a circle

Our support doesn’t end once your adoption has been finalized. We offer post adoption services for adoptive families and adoptees living across the U.S. In Illinois, we provide adoption-competent therapy as an ongoing resource for adoptive parents and adoptees, as well as parent education workshops that help with the unique struggles of adoptive parenting.

Lifelong Adoption Support

Holt is committed to providing lifelong support to adoptees, adoptive parents, birth parents and any other person whose life has been touched by adoption.

We invite you to reach out to us for help with anything from birth family search to short-term counseling to finding ways to connect with others who have similar lived experiences.
