The First Five Steps to Adoption – Step Two

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on April 24, 2014

Last week, we shared with you the first vital step in your adoption journey. Today, we’d like to share step two with you, and that is to learn the costs for adoption, and prepare financially.

Different types of adoption do have varying costs. Adopting waiting children from the U.S. are typically the lowest cost.

In order to maximize your adoption dollars, make sure that you educate yourself about the adoption tax credit. You can find more info about the credit in this article on our website, “Smart Financing For Your Adoption.” In addition, this article contains information about adoption loans, adoption grants, and government subsidies for adoption.

Also, make sure that you ask your employer about adoption benefits. More and more employers these days are adding adoption to their benefits package.

When you begin exploring your financial options and saving money now, it will make your adoption journey that much sweeter! Stay tuned to our blog for the third step in adoption.
