Financing Adoption Expenses

We understand that international adoption is not inexpensive. Our fees are determined based on domestic and overseas expenses, and include certain unavoidable costs such as rent, utilities, telephones, printing, supplies and postage, as well as compensation for our staff. Our fees must cover all operating expenses and provide sufficient reserve to cover months without placements or expenses incurred in connection with children who are ultimately not placed for adoption with our clients. We must also budget for travel expenses to foreign countries to begin new programs or iron out wrinkles in existing ones, as well as for foreign adoption officials to come to the United States to check on the adjustment of their children. Finally, it is important that our fees generate enough income to allow us to assist foreign orphanages with necessities such as food, clothing, medicine, and educational equipment for the many children who wait for families.

Here at Cradle of Hope we want to do all that we can to ensure that any person willing and able to care for a child is given that chance. Below you will find a list that our agency has compiled of organizations that offer grants, loans, tax deductions, reimbursements, and fundraising options aimed towards families pursuing adoption. Please read the descriptions carefully as many of these agency’s have eligibility criteria for determining their award recipients.

The following financing ideas may be helpful for your family:
