Affording Adoption

The adoption process can cost little to nothing for many families.

The cost of adoption is dependent on the agency you choose to work with, but in most cases adoptions from foster care have minimal, and in some cases no, costs to the family. Be sure to ask your agency what types of costs you might expect.

Adoption Assistance

Subsidy programs may be available to assist you with the costs of caring for the child you adopt. Financial aid programs such as medical cards, tax credits, grants, and other support payments may also apply.
