How much money do you have to make to adopt? I'm a single mom with a 5 year old daughter and I want another baby so bad.

  • I would contact a local adoption agency and ask what your options are. That is the best way because it may differ from stats to state or even county to county. = ) Go to and put in "Adoption Agency" and your area under the 'MAPS' tab.

    Good luck! = )

  • From foster care, you only need to show proof of being financially stable without relying on an assistance. Having enough for bills etc. without struggling.
