  • Look on your states website and do a search of adoption help. I know that a lot of states give help. Indiana I know helps a lot of the adoptive parents. Up to 1500 in lawyer fee's is paid, some people get money on a monthly basis sort of like the per diem for foster children. It depends a lot on how old, how many and what race the children are. I can probably get you more information if you want me to. You can get ahold of me through here or you can pop me off an email at shadows_2000_21@hotmail.com if you like.

    Hope this helped!!!

  • Adopting through foster care is low cost (ours cost $16.50) so you can always check with your state about available children.

  • I'm sorry, but as a mom who is putting her child up for adoption, I firmly believe that if you have to ask to receive financial help, you should work on stabilizing yourself before adopting a child. Children are expensive... I'm not trying to down your effort on adopting, but that was one of the main factors I had in choosing the adoptive family for my baby. Not that they be rich out of this world, but stable enough for themselves to raise a child.

  • I disagree with anonymous. I am an adoptive parent of twins. I didn't have $25,000-$50,000 laying around to be able to fulfill my dream of parenthood. My husband and I provide for them very well, they have everything they need and want. Most parents are lucky enough to have children naturally and it doesn't cost them up to $50,000 just to GET a child, which comes before you even start to pay for all their needs. Just because you can't afford the PROCESS of adoption on your own, doesn't mean you can't properly address their material and emotional needs. My adopted kids have a house to live in that we own, their own rooms, clothes, toys, a dog and most importantly love. Even though we couldn't afford the adoption process, I think we are doing very well for them.
