I’ve also been interested to learn that so many of my friends and even family members have questions about adoption and the adoption process as well. When Kris or I have shared our plans and hopes for future years, we have a huge network of support from friends, even those who aren’t completely sure of what we are getting ourselves into.
So, starting from the basics about adoption
What organizations help with adoptions?: Adoptions can be carried out through an adoption agency or privately. Most domestic adoptions are new born adoptions. Other adoption options: foster care, orphan adoptions, out of country adoptions, and embryo adoptions. The typical cost (see upcoming post): $20,000- $30,000 for most adoptions.
