Packet A

The packet and checklist below include the instructions and forms needed for your application to WHFC. Please submit these materials together. Once we review your application, you will be contacted by a member of our staff. For the initial phase of your adoption, your main point of contact will be a WHFC social worker experienced in working with out-of-state families and partner agencies. Then, once your home study is approved, you will be assigned to a case manager on the program team of your country of adoption.

We look forward to working with you - and are here to help you every step of the way! If you have questions about the application process, please don't hesitate to contact Maryanne Ludwig at 781-894-5330.

You may find it easier to print this checklist and use it as you complete the necessary paperwork.
