Completing Your Application
The following documents will be needed in order to complete your application with our office. Many of these documents will have already been obtained by your home study professional. You may need to contact them and request that they attach those documents to your home study, or provide you or us with copies. Your home study, medical exam, three letters of reference and background checks must have been completed within one year of your pending adoption. Otherwise, you must also provide our agency with a home study update and updated documents listed above. Please note that Oklahoma law requires that you have a face-to-face meeting for your updated home study, and that your reference letters, medical exam and criminal background checks also be updated at that time.
Feel free to contact our office directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help you navigate the adoption process.
