Step 2 - Application

We are pleased to welcome you to the Spirit of Faith Adoptions family.  As you complete each subsequent step in the process and all corresponding fees for those steps have been paid, you will be invited to proceed to the next step via an email notification.  Once that notification is received, you will have access to the forms and documents for the next step in your process.  Please allow two business days for the notification to be made and access to be authorized after a step has been completed.

The next step in your process is to complete the standardized Ohio form "Application for Child Placement".  For all new home study applications, it is crucial to fill this out in its entirety, including disclosure of any criminal history.  Every section must be completed.  If a question does not apply to you, please fill in "n/a".  Use the Document Submission Form to upload your completed application.

Please note:  While we have given you access to additional steps for informational purposes, please know that NOTHING completed prior to the notification that your application has been accepted will be valid for your home study.  Please do NOT access online training, or complete any additional paperwork until that notification has been received.  Invalid items will have to be resubmitted to complete your home study.

If you have already completed a home study with another agency within the past two years, please do not fill out another application.  You can move on to step 3b: Pre-Service Training.  However, Ellie will need to authorize you to access it.  Please email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The application fee is now due for those who are submitting the Ohio Application for Child Placement to us.  When you have reached this step in the process, a fee payment link will display on the menu to the left.  Once the application and payment are received, you will be able to proceed with gathering and submitting the remaining documents needed for your home study!
