One of the first things families learn about adoption is that the fees associated with the cost of adoption can be substantial. It's easy to become overwhelmed and think it an impossible task to find the money required. Often, families can afford to raise a child, but affording adoption itself can be daunting.

Fortunately, there are many resources available to assist you. If you qualify, some are relatively easy to obtain, such as the adoption tax credit and employer adoption benefits. Others will take time and effort on your part. The good news is that you can afford to adopt if you are willing to work at it. Set goals, short- and long-term, and take it one step at a time.
