Child Adoption Rates

The fees associated with the adoption process rely on the kind of adoption being pursued. The fees have less to do with the child and more about the services an adopter pays while waiting for placement. Therefore, when people are looking for child adoption rates, they're associating the child with terms used for commodities. This is something the adoption community hears a lot, but that kind of language can affect the child's sense of worth and the way other people perceive the adoptee as he or she matures.

Every adoption requires a home study. These run a few thousand dollars that may be refundable as either a tax credit or with a federal or state subsidy if the child is adopted from a public agency and has special needs. Because the government wants to provide incentive for the adoption of older children, public agency adoption has nearly no fees and is ideal for adopters with modest incomes and a lot of time and patience.

Other forms of adoption cost anywhere from $5,000 to over $40,000. These fees are associated with birth mother and travel expenses and for the services, such as counseling and legal fees, that private agencies provide. The expenses associated with international adoption have a few universal fees to file visa paperwork, but philanthropic donations as well as flight and other costs depend on the country's regulations.
