Concerned About Having Enough Money for Adoption

Before saying anything else, we want to commend you on your willingness to open up your hearts and your home to a child who desperately needs caring parents. Your desire to look into this option reflects the love that Christ has for all children.

Since launching our Wait No More® Foster Care and Adoption Program we've been aware that there are many couples who want to adopt but are inhibited by the costs involved.

One of our goals has been to provide as much information as we can about the financial aspects of the process in an effort to help prospective parents reach their goal. We've also made it our mission to recruit adoptive families for children in foster care. This is an excellent way to avoid the financial challenge since adoption from foster care costs virtually nothing.

While our website doesn't specifically address the financial aspect of the adoption process, we encourage you to check out the following organizations:

And if you'd like to discuss your plans with a member of our staff, feel free to call Focus on the Family's Counseling department.
