What is the cost of a domestic adoption?
There are several factors that determine the cost of the program you choose. Variables such as medical bills, birth mother expenses, and legal fees are sometimes tough to estimate, but we strive to maintain affordable adoptions.
Adoptive families are allowed to place a cap on the miscellaneous fees based on their budget requirements. Please keep in mind that our fee estimates do not include miscellaneous fees like your travel expenses when you pick up the baby.
Can I write off my adoption expenses on my taxes?
Please contact your CPA regarding possible adoption tax credits.
