the cost of foster care adoption

My husband brought to my attention I forgot to share something important about foster care adoption.  Foster care adoption is affordable, especially when compared to private adoption.  While private adoption ranges from $20-60K, foster care adoption costs around $2800.  Most if not all will be refunded by the state when you finalize your adoption.  This means we will get to spend the money raising the child or children we are privileged to care for, not spending it on adopting them. Fabulous!

  1. I love that you put this in!

    • Someone needs to share this info. If we had known what we know about foster care adoption before we probably would have pursued it years ago. I wish we had someone to inform us when we were first talking about adoption. This is part of the reason I want to have this blog, to inform and help other people who may be considering adoption.
