The Dollars and $ense of Family Building

The Dollars and $ense of Family Building

The second most popular question people ask is…
‘How much does it cost?’

Since I am now farther into the adoption process and have been learning as I go, I now like to answer that with a ‘Can you put a price on love’ ?
If you go to an agencies website they usually won’t list out the fees, typically you need to contact them and ask for information mailed to you or ask for a one-on-one meeting. Once you get the final numbers you basically go into shock and stare blindly into space while rocking back and forth. “They want how much to adopt?” “How is that possible?” and yet lots of families find the money and babies find forever homes, and we all live happily ever after.

If your looking to adopt there are resources (I’m told). My agency lists them all out online at http://www.adoptionassociates.net/resources/adoption_funding/
The federal tax credit is Awesome, as long as it keeps getting renewed by the president. Their is one Credit Union in the United states that does Adoption loans, as long as you have a religion. Contact your local banks and you may be able to qualify for a personal loan for a portion of it.

The #1 way to fund adoption:
SAVE the money and swallow your pride and ask family and friends for help. Make it very convenient for others to donate, we set up a website and have a thermometer to track our final Goal. our website

Welcome to the blog hop!

I did not know that ANY financial institution offered adoption loans. So thanks for telling me something new.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, SarahAndy.
