Pre-Placement Visits

When adopting a waiting child, you usually will have several visits with the child before you bring him or her home to stay. If the child lives outside your community, perhaps even in another state, you probably will be expected to travel at least once and often several times to where the child is living. Although the child's agency may help with some of your costs of transportation, food, and lodging, you probably will have to pay some of the costs yourself.
