Getting Started

Friday’s Child is excited to partner with you in shaping your family.

Please contact us for a free consultation if you are unsure of your options.

Our services include:

Home Study

Our friendly and professional counselors will visit your home and ask you to share about your lifestyle and background.

Post Placement and Post Adoption Services

Following your new arrival, we will check in on your family to assist everyone with the challenge of adjusting to a new family member. We will ensure that all the requirements of your adoption are met, and provide support for as long as you need us.

Parental Placement Services

We offer services to families adopting privately to comply with Virginia law. This includes a home study, counseling for the birth parents, the court report, and all other documentation. We also recommend joint counseling for the adoptive parents and birth parents, although this is not a requirement.
