Utah Adoption Specialists provides home studies, pre-adoption services, and post-adoption services to all Utah communities. The company consists of eight social workers who live in the Salt Lake City area, including Utah county and Davis county, and can travel to visit the homes of any family in Utah.

While Utah Adoption Specialists does not place children in families, it does help with other services required throughout the adoption journey.

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Free Casework Services
  • Birth Parent Services
  • Competitive Pricing

Free Casework Services

Aside from paid services like home studies, Utah Adoption Specialists is committed to providing constant care to families during the adoption process. Services that help the process of adoption like writing a birth parent letter or profile, establishing contact with expectant parents, or planning and enduring the wait for an adoption are always free. Utah Adoption Specialists reviews show that almost every adoptive couple appreciates these free family services. 

Birth Parent Services

Social workers at Utah Adoption Specialists have had experience working in adoption agencies and social work and want to provide birth parents in private adoptions with the same services they would find in an adoption agency. A mother can receive counseling, help with relinquishments, and can be connected to resources in her community. The adoptive family can also work through Utah Adoption Specialists to cover expenses or special needs of a birth mother.

Competitive Pricing

Adoption laws around the world require specific documentation and check-ups from an adoption caseworker. At Utah Adoption Specialists, services for required home studies and home study updates are on the low end of the national average or even lower. Other services are competitively priced compared to agencies around the nation. Utah Adoption Specialists can assist with domestic adoption through an agency or privately, as well as international adoption with an accredited international adoption agency. 


The Bad

  • Not a Child Placing Agency
  • Extra Fees for Out of State

Not a Child Placing Agency

This agency can help with many of the steps required in order to finalize an adoption, but it doesn’t offer any child placing services. Prospective adoptive parents can use Utah Adoption Specialists’ services in combination with an adoption agency to place the child or with a private adoption. 

Extra Fees for Out of State

Utah Adoption Specialists can work out of state, but customers will have to pay additional travel fees for all services with a social worker present. Families wanting an adoption home study out of Utah will have to verify the availability and cost with the adoption specialist.


The Bottom Line

Utah Adoption Specialists has some great resources for families and birth parents alike during the adoption experience. This agency could be helpful both for an expectant mother and for hopeful adoptive parents. These services, like the home study process, come at a competitive price and also come with free support during the adoption process. 

The only drawback is that this agency is not a child placing agency, meaning that families looking to adopt will have to work with another agency or private adoption in addition to Utah Adoption Specialists.
