Adoption

Webster-Cantrell Hall is committed to achieving permanency in a child’s life. To help accomplish this, we provide Private Adoption and Adoption Conversion Services.

Private Adoptions require that we complete background checks, a home study of the adopting family, and submit the written home study to the adopting family’s attorney. We also must testify in the adoption finalization court hearing. Once this is all completed and a fee of $1,500 has been paid, the adoption is finalized.

Adoption Conversions provide a child who is in foster care a permanent living arrangement and establishes life long supports.
