Bulgaria requires post-placement supervisory reports completed at 6 12, 18, and 24 months after the adoption finalization date by the home study agency that prepared the original home study. If you have moved, we can identify another home study agency to perform these reports. These post-placement reports address your child(ren)'s bonding with the family, physical health development, social development, educational development and plans, and extended family relationships. Your home study agency should be familiar with these requirements and if not, we will work with your agency at the appropriate time.
Each post-placement report, prepared by a state-licensed home study agency, should include at least 4-5 photographs of your child. All original post-placement reports should be submitted to FTIA for submission to the foreign adoption officials (with photos, notarized and apostilled.)
Additionally, some home study agencies or states may have additional post-placement requirements. Please check with your home study agency to determine if there are any additional requirements. If any additional post-placement reports are required by your home study agency or state, we require that you provide us a copy.
