Our team will prepare paperwork necessary for the adoptive parents to bring the child back to their home state, this will be referred to as ICPC paperwork. Once both states approve the placement, the adoptive parents can bring the child to their home state. Many of the adoptive families choose to finalize the adoption in Louisiana, but it is not required. The birth certificate must be revised or amended by the state in which the child was born but the application for the SSN will not be affected.
