Tennessee Children’s Home – East is licensed as a child-placing agency
by the state of Tennessee. As a child-placing agency we can provide
adoption services. We provide these services in three areas.
1. Adoptive placement - We can meet the needs of children who
need a permanent home and who can benefit from family life by
becoming permanent members of a family. The Agency considers
adoption an appropriate service for children whose birth parents are
unwilling or unable to provide care for them and who are or can be
legally freed for adoption. These services for children include
finding a suitable adoptive home, referral for subsidy and other
supports, and placement as soon as legally possible. Services are
also provided to birth parents while they are making the decision to
surrender their child and following that decision.
2. Adoptive Home Studies – There are times when a family is in
need of an adoptive home study because of a child being placed with
them by someone other than an agency and they need a home study to
complete the process. There are also times when a family is dealing
with an agency not licensed in the state of Tennessee who needs a
home study done by a state licensed agency.
3. Post-placement supervision – Most children placed in an
adoptive home need post placement supervision of at least six
months. Many foreign adoptions require longer periods of time. Tennessee Children’s Home – East will provide those visits and
reports during that time.
