Loudoun Pediatric Associates is happy to begin offering pre-adoption consultation services and follow up. The purpose of the pre-adoption consultation is to help guide families in anticipating the medical and psychosocial needs of specific children for whom adoption is being considered. Pre-adoption consultations include review of background information, medical records, vaccination requirements, maternal and birth history, and medical preparation for overseas travel. Of course we cannot predict the long-term outcome of any child or family, but we hope to help you prepare for the needs of your new family member as much as possible. Once your child arrives, we will perform a comprehensive assessment of health and nutritional status as well as developmental screening and consider the need for any additional testing or referalls. We look forward to helping with a smooth transition for your growing family!
