2. How much do adoptions cost?
Adoption expenses can be up to $40,000, depending on the type of adoption. All adoptions will have the cost of a home study as well as fees for attorneys and court documentation. International adoptions and some domestic adoptions will also have the additional expense of travel. Adopting through a foster care agency can involve very little expense…and sometimes none at all!
