Cost and Timing of Adoption

Results from our annual Cost & Timing of Adoption Surveys.

by the editors of Adoptive Families

Each year, Adoptive Families polls readers to get the real story on the average cost and length of time it takes to complete an adoption.  We've heard from many families just starting out in adoption that the final survey results are immensely helpful to them. For example, in addition to reporting on the raw data, we've used past survey results to prepare this useful "Sample Adoption Budgets" tool on our Adoption Guide site, for prospective adoptive parents.

We're pleased to announce that more than 1,100 families completed our 2012-2013 survey! The winner of our giveaway was Evelyn Hedden, of Georgia, and we were honored to contribute to Love Without Boundaries in her name. The organization funds education and medical care, arranges for foster homes, and more for orphaned and impoverished children in China.
