How the process works

The Adoptive Process for children in the AASK Program is a step by step process that ensures the best decisions are made for the children. The decision of a specific child to be placed with a family is a team decision with the ultimate responsibility being with the child’s legal custodian – the Department of Human Services.

Steps to Adoption

  3. Participate in a home assessment process.

  4. Once approved, become eligible to be matched with any one of our many children waiting for a permanent home.
