How to Make Adoption an Affordable Option

How to Make Adoption an Affordable Option

Source: Army Family Publication

Welcoming an adopted child into the home is a joyous event. But some families may miss this wonderful experience because they've heard adoption is too difficult or expensive.

How to Make Adoption an Affordable Option, a new publication from the National Endowment for Financial Education and the U.S. Office of Consumer Affairs, details the different types of adoption available, including international and special needs. It also discusses the adoption process and expenses, along with some of the misconceptions surrounding adoption.

To order a free copy, send your name and address to: Consumer Information Center, Dept. 602E, Pueblo, CO 81009. Or call (719) 948-4000 (regular long distance rates apply) and request Item 602E.

While it's true that the process of adopting a child involves a financial investment on your part, it's also true that plenty of options and resources exist for helping keep your costs manageable. Some adoption agencies, for example, set their fees according to a sliding scale based on your income.

Learn more with How to Make Adoption an Affordable Option. When you write or call, you'll also receive a free copy of the Consumer Information Catalog, a quarterly listing of more than 200 free and low-cost federal publications on a variety of consumer topics.
