How much is it to adopt a child? So many people who are interested in adoption find themselves stuck, believing that they could never afford adoption.  Adopting an infant or a child is a profound journey that transforms the lives of both the adopted child and the adoptive family. It’s a decision filled with hope, love, anticipation, and, of course, legal processes. Alongside the emotional considerations and legal processes, prospective adoptive parents should be informed regarding their question, “How much is it to adopt a child?”

Understanding Adoption Costs

The costs associated with adoption can vary widely depending on several factors, including the type of adoption pursued. Domestic infant adoption, international adoption, and foster care adoption each have unique cost structures. When asking, “How much is it to adopt a child?” consider these variables as you determine which type of adoption is the best match for your family.

Domestic infant adoption typically involves agency fees, legal fees, home study costs, birth mother living expenses, and post-placement fees. International adoption may include agency fees, legal fees, home study costs travel expenses, and foreign country fees. Foster care adoption, on the other hand, can be a less expensive type of adoption, as many expenses are covered by the state or government.  Building Arizona Families, a licensed, A+ rated Arizona adoption agency, believes in transparency when it comes to adoption costs, and so the specific breakdown of costs is listed on our website HERE.

Planning Ahead

Prospective parents should understand the costs involved in adoption to be prepared for the journey. Advance budgeting for adoption expenses can help alleviate stress during the process. While the costs may seem daunting, there are resources and support available to assist families in their adoption journey, including adoption grants.  You can find information about financial resources HERE.
