During the tour they are looking for a lot of different things. Do you have proper accomadations for the new child, safety,cleanliness, where are medications, cleansers, poisons kept/stored. They will ask about guns in the home. They will also do a background check on all adults and teens that live in the home. If you have school age kids they may go to the school to look see if there are issues there. Basically, for us anyway, it was a necessary but very invasive process. Only one thing shocked me though. She asked if we had a trampoline and then verified in the yard that we did not. I asked her why. She said "if you did you would not be approved for the adoption until it was gone" I later asked our lawyer about it and he confirmed it was true.I got really nervous about the whole thing but I'm not sure why. We had nothing to hide. I hope this helps. Good Luck.
