What about all the rumors about having to meet difficult financial, emotional, and physical requirements before being approved by an agency to adopt a child?
Interviews between agency and prospective adoptive parents are necessary. It is the law in Nevada that in order to adopt a non-related child, a family must be approved by a licensed child placement agency. The home study is not meant to create anxiety, but to place children with the best parents for them. Each agency has its own procedure. If you can meet agency requirements and can provide love, security, guidance, commitment and a stable environment for a future son or daughter, you can become an adoptive parent.
