"How to Make Adoption an Affordable Option" is for people who would like to consider adoption but are reluctant because they believe that the process is too expensive. It is also for families who, caught up in the emotions of adopting, may not have given serious thought to some of the less obvious financial aspects of adoption. Here you'll find out about expenses common to most adoptions, as well as those unique to the adoption of waiting children, to independent adoptions, and to international adoptions. You'll also learn about financial assistance and tax breaks available to adoptive parents.

If you're thinking seriously of adopting, don't let the myths about the costs deter you. On the other hand, don't let your emotions blind you to the real costs. By careful financial planning, you can make adoption an affordable option for your family and provide a nurturing environment for a child.
