I am curious as to why it costs so much to adopt an infant from an agency. They don't pay the mother, I know it is against the law. Medicaid normally covers the medical bills so, is the agent/agency collecting all of this money in profits? People have paid 10s of thousands of dollars for these babies but, where is the money going? I am mainly talking about Domestic Infant Adoption. I don't want adoption bashers I just want facts or your opinion on where the money goes.

Same question I have been asking myself and others!! It's really sad and frustrating!!!
Those outrageous adoption fees are mainly profit for the agencies and HUGE obstacles for the prospective adoptive parents.
Why we must to spend so much money in order to provide a loving/caring home to a baby/child, who's already in need (cases may vary)!??! Instead of using that money in providing a great life to the child?!? Pretty discouraging!!
I rather help the expectant mom directly and the legal fees and not work with an Adoption Agency at all. Anyway, I still hope for a miracle!!
