We asked the Morning Star team, "What do you love about working with adoptive families?"

We love working with adoptive families to help them realize their dreams of growing their families.  We love building relationships with our families and being able to support them in each step of their adoption process.

And "What is the best part of the home study?"

The home study process can be overwhelming.  The paperwork, the education, the interviews… it’s a lot to undertake.  Our favorite part of the home study is walking the home study journey with families.  Helping them build confidence to become great adoptive families and seeing their transformations from orientation to a completed home study fills our buckets.    

How much does a home study cost?

Morning Star's home study fee starts at $2000 with a $250 application fee. Cost depends on distance due to travel fees.
