How to Reduce or Eliminate Your Total Adoption Cost

Perhaps the #1 reason why families who are called to adopt don't do so is the cost. While it may seem prohibitive, America World families have seen their total out-of-pocket adoption costs reduced greatly through adoption grants, the Federal Adoption Tax Credit, employee adoption benefits, fundraisers, and more.
