The first step after deciding to adopt a child is choosing an agency, which will go a long way in determining the financial aspects involved in the search. Adoption agency fees can range from a few thousand dollars to more than $40,000. Some agencies will offer a sliding fee scale where costs are based on income. Then there’s the cost of an attorney. Travel also becomes an additional expense when couples are required to commute to the birth country of the child they are adopting.
That said, adoption can force even the most financially secure to dig deep into personal pockets, which can be especially disarming if much has already been invested into infertility treatments. For those hopeful parents who can’t contemplate the idea of taking on such staggering debt, crowdfunding is a path to consider for easing the financial burdens of adoption.
