Authorizations and Licenses

NB is Hague Accredited, and licensed in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida. NB can provide home study and adoption services for residents of these states. Families that live in another state, we can provide adoption services, and we will work with a local agency for home study services. For families receiving adoption services from another agency and need a home study, we can provide the service in the states we are licensed.

Relative Adoptions

Primary provider services to many families adopting Orphaned Relatives from different countries. We can not provided services everywhere, but to explore if NB can help, submit a pre-application.
