IAN is a licensed agency in the state of Colorado, which means we can provide home study services for Colorado residents.*

This agency will provide your home study services, including required paperwork, background checks, home visits, etc, as well as your post adoption reports. IAN will review and approve the home study before it’s finalized to ensure that it meets the requirements of the PAP’s adoption program. You can use this link for a list of Hague-accredited home study providers in your area.
*International Adoption Net can provide adoption services for families residing in any state.
The first step is to contact us for more information and we’ll connect you with an experienced staff member who can help prepare you for your adoption journey. You can click “Contact Us” to submit an inquiry form and you’ll receive a response from IAN shortly.
Once you’ve spoken to a staff member and feel ready to move forward with your adoption, you can click “Apply” at the top of our website to submit an initial application. Your application will be reviewed by an IAN supervisor to ensure that you’re eligible to adopt through one of our country programs.
Upon the approval of your application, our Colorado office will contact you regarding the application fee and you’ll receive our policy packet to complete. The completion and submission of the policy packet and required fees will make you an official IAN client family and your coordinator will get you started on the next steps of the process.
