30+ Reasons Finances Should Not Keep You from Adopting
There are many reasons why people consider adoption, but never move beyond the 'thinking about it' stage. While not everyone is called to adopt (important to note), the cost of adoption should not be THE reason for not moving forward if God is leading you.
Over 4,000 families have adopted, or are in the process of adopting, through America World. Most of them would testify that adoption costs were a big concern in their decision to adopt. Most of them would also tell you that, because they knew God was leading, He provided and made a way past that obstacle–whether under it, over it, around it, or through it, He made a way!
America World's Financial Resources Information Packet will be very helpful as you plan financially for your adoption. We wish that adoption was not so costly and such an obstacle for so many families. The reality is that there are many costs associated with adoption:
- Home studies
- Immigration fees
- Background checks
- Required training
- Translation fees
- Agency fees
- Flight costs
- Lodging costs
- Post adoption paperwork
- and more…
Be sure to download the Financial Resources Information Packet and put it to good use. It is full of ways to supplement (or even completely cover!) your adoption costs. From the Federal Adoption Tax Credit and grants, to America World's Eternal Family Program and fundraising, you will have plenty of resources!
