Prospective Adoptive Parents should determine whether adoption fits into their budget by carefully researching all their options. It is important to consider the future.

If the answer is yes, it may be better to wait, save, and get into a better financial position before making the commitment to adopt.  See our section on Help Paying for an Adoption.
