How much money do you get if you give your baby up for adoption?

I am pregnant and just read someones post. She said its around 65k to adopt, and I could use the money. So I just wanted to know if you get to keep the money

  • It is interesting that you can sell your eggs or yourself as a surrogate but not once the baby is born, not that I would be in favor of that, I just never thought about it.

  • No, that is selling the baby. The fees go to the adoption agency. It is interesting that you can sell your eggs though....

  • you cannot sell a child sorry hun....i think i'm sorry, not sure why though! The thought that you would willingly sell your kid is very disturbing.

  • The fees go to legal expenses and things like that, sometimes you can have medical expenses paid if you do a private adoption....but it is illegal to sell a baby.

  • Well its for finding the birth parent and all the legal work that goes along with it. I think you can be paid for expenses while you are pregnant, but no you will not get a check in exchange for your baby. If you want to sell some part of you, go donate some blood or plasma or donate an egg when you are not pregnant.

  • well to be honest, i kind of knew this would get the dice rolling. Im not pregnant :D and I wouldnt sell my baby either. But I could see some people doing this. Isnt there a move out there where a guy takes his daughter and sells her?

  • you know what the crazier part is, you can have someones stuff put in you and be a serrogate mother and be paid for it. The only difference is, is that the baby isnt yours
