Parent Education

Children’s House International believes that international adoptive education is a lifelong journey. We share with one another and keep learning along the way. As we reflect on the international adoption in the ’50s, 60’s and 70’s, we’ve learned that parent education is crucial to the success of the placement of the child in their home. Education on everything from the child’s culture to medical concerns and adoption through adolescence and beyond.

We require that all prospective adoptive parents receive a minimum of 10 hours (China requires 12) of parent education on Hague related topics and child approval criteria. This can be done by using on-line training courses and one-on-one training. All required training should be completed before the home study review and approved by the agency.
