Why Do Adoption Agencies keep you Birth Certificates / Homestudy?
My Adoption Social Worker asked for original copies of our Birth Certificates, I figured thats easy!!!!!! (figuring she was just gonna look at them and give them back) lol!!! Then my husband told me to ask the social worker if she planned on keeping them, I thought he was just getting a little cranky due to the homestudy being so intense…so I kindda blew it off, plus I didnt want to make waves with the SW, so my husband called and asked her if she was gonna keep them and sure as rain she said YES!!!!! My husband was a little upset, saying he didnt understand why they needed to be kept, this that and the other, although my SW explained the reasons why and was completly patient and understood his fustration, she also told us its no rush, its just a heads up when the adoption process is finalized!!!! I was sooooooo mad at my husband, Im like great our homstudy is gonna be DENIED!!!!!!!!
Does anyone know why they keep your original? And is this a good sign that our homestudy is may be approved? I cant imagine why she would ask for them if we werent!!!
