How much and what type of financial assistance can I receive?

Every Adoption is different, and each situation is unique. Every state has slightly different laws about adoption expenses, but it is safe to say Adoptive Parents may provide financial assistance to cover medical expenses (not covered by state aid), groceries, housing, utilities, cell phone service, and counseling. These expenses may only be paid during the pregnancy and up to a maximum of six weeks after birth. The law states the maximum amount allowed to be paid for pregnancy-related expenses. The court must justify and approve any additional funds before they can be paid. All our Birth Mothers will work with their Adoption Specialists to make a budget for their planned expenses.
