Adoption Frequently Asked Question #6
I can’t afford to adopt. Where can I get help with adoption costs?
There are many options for making adoption affordable. Child Welfare Information Gateway, a service of the Children’s Bureau, provides information and resources to help perspective adoptive parents understand the costs of adoption and other resources to help with adoption costs on its website, Adoption Expenses, at http://www.childwelfare.gov/adoption/adoptive/expenses.cfm. This website also includes a link to an information packet, Funding Adoption: Adoption General Information Packet 2, available at http://www.childwelfare.gov/pubs/adoption_gip_two.cfm, and links to Adoption Assistance by State at http://www.childwelfare.gov/adoption/adopt_assistance/.
