Every Adoption is different, and each situation 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. Any additional funds, must be justified and approved by the court before it can be paid. All our Birth Mothers will work with their Adoption Specialist to make a budget of their planned expenses.
