Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the case of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.- Isaiah 1:17

Home Study Services

If you are working with an agency outside of Michigan, you need a licensed Michigan child-placing agency to complete your adoption home study.  As a Hague accredited, licensed Michigan child-placing agency, we are able to complete adoption home studies throughout Michigan for families who are completing their adoption with an out-of-state agency. We look forward to the opportunity of working with your family as you embark upon your adoption journey and ask that you contact the 1:17 Center for Global Adoption to inquire into how we may assist you by providing adoption home study services.

The 1:17 Center for Global Adoption provides adoption home studies for our own adoption programs. We also complete adoption home studies and provide Post-Placement Services for Michigan residents choosing to work with an adoption agency in another state.

Please contact us if you are working with an agency in another state and need an Adoption Home Study in Michigan.

International Adoption

A domestic adoption can occur in many different ways. Some adoptive parents work directly with their birthparents, others are assisted by a child placing agency and some adopt as stepparents, guardians and relatives. The 1:17 Center for Global Adoption can assist you in each of these possibilities.
