Providing a full range of services needed for a successful adoption
My husband and I have been adoptive parents for over 19 years. We have a total of 8 adopted children. The last 3 that we adopted, we had our home study done and post placement visits done thru Home Study Services of NC with Anne Liddicote. It was so much easier than going thru the state and so less evasive. The children were comfortable when she came out to the house, not just the ones that were being placed at the time, but the ones that we had already adopted.
When we were inquiring about children she was there to help and would give us her opinion. Anne would always ask the other workers the right questions to get the most information. She helped us from making some mistakes along the way by not adoption children that would not have been a good fit. Anne wouldn’t let us give up and kept pushing forward until we found the children for our family. She helped with out of state and also local placements. Even with the ICPC, she kept on top of things and made sure all was done correctly.
I have worked with many social workers and have found our experience with Anne has definitely been the easiest, fastest, and least stressful. I highly recommend her for all of your adoption needs. If not for Anne, we would never have gotten our last 3 children. She worked very hard to make sure that it happened and all 3 have been a perfect fit for our family. Two of the children came from different parts of Texas and the last one came from NC.
My husband and I started the adoption journey 7 months ago. Home Study Services of NC came highly recommended to us and did not disappoint. We found Anne Liddicote to be warm, engaging, professional and put all of our fears at ease. We knew we were in great hands through out the home study process. Anne answered all of our questions ( we had many), in a timely and patient manner. If we decide to adopt again, Home Study Services of NC will be the first place that we call. We can not thank Anne enough for partnering with us on this journey.
We have been working with Anne Liddicote of Home Study Services of NC since March of 2016. Anne completed a home study for our international adoption, and we have been beyond pleased with her services. She has such a heart for her work and for the families with whom she works. Our adoption has not been an easy one, but Anne has been an invaluable source of support for us each step of the way. She is very compassionate, professional, and reliable. In a society where it is very common to call a business and get recording after recording, I love that I cannot think of a time when I have called her and she didn't answer! We are forever grateful for Anne and all she has done to help bring our son home forever!
We have had the privilege of working with Anne who is an exceptional, knowledgeable, credible, and caring social worker. She came highly recommended to us from prominent attorneys throughout the triangle and surrounding communities. Anne has worked with us the past few years on international and domestic (department of social services and private) adoptions. She has been so patient and understanding ensuring we understood the process involved with each adoption we pursued. We especially are fortunate to have her help us through our current out of state adoption. She knows the rules and regulations and helped us to be able to step in and question decisions made by our previous agency and law firm that was representing us.
We will forever be indebted to her as she sees our adoption through and ensures it is done correctly. Anne also understands the behaviors and risks involved with adopting children of all ages. She has helped us to understand not only child development but the trauma adoptive children endure and make recommendations to better not only the child and our family. Adoption is an incredibly difficult process. We have been so fortunate and are truly blessed to have Anne by our side not only as our social worker but as our friend. Without hesitation we can recommend Anne for all of those interested or currently involved in the adoption process.
