This will signal your entrance into our program and the first step towards a new baby. 2) You will need a home study. You must have a home study completed prior to being accepted into our program. If you live in Texas and have not identified a home study agency or licensed social worker, call our office. We perform home studies, but can refer you to a reputable social worker in your area. If you are not using Family to Family as your home study provider, please make copies of or have your licensed social worker mail along with the completed home study all of the supporting documents such as medical letters, employment verification, reference letters, etc. Also a floor plan of your home and pictures of the front and back of the home should be provided.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
