  • not here I know that. cafemom does NOT approve of that, too many variables.
    call your local children and family services and ask them, they will direct you.

  • Newspaper ads are very common. You can also go through a church depending on your religious views or an adoption agency and in some cases even an attorney who specializes in surrogacy and adoption.

  • is there any way i could adopt a kid cheap

    Answer by Iwantababygirl at 12:46 AM on Jul. 27, 2010

  • If you want to do it the cheapest way, foster adopt is it, although there is no guarantee you will come through the process with a child (unless you want to adopt a child who is already legally free for adoption). If you want to adopt a baby, your best bet is to use an agency or organization that helps expectant women considering adoption (EWCA) to find families. I used to want to adopt privately to avoid the agency, thinking it would be cheaper. We ended up adopting twice through Catholic Charities. I've heard from women who did adopt privately, and they often paid far more than we did.

    More important than the cost is the safety for you and the EWCA. You want to make sure that she is treated with respect by the agency and not pressured. She will need support during and long after the process. She is safer having some sort of mediator (IMO) who can ask you questions that she wouldn't have thought of.
