But, I'm not sure because then you would being paying for the home study yourself... I don't know how you get around that when you don't want to foster locally as generally there is no cost. But, I am guessing the local agencies wouldn't put the time/$$ into doing your homestudy if you weren't going to foster for them.
I contacted them via the website and they sent back a generic letter stating that I would need to get a home study done by an agency that handles out of state, foster adoptions. It clearly stated not to just use any agency as they may not properly comply with the right regulations for out of state.

My problem is I can't figure out how to do that
