Adoptive Families, the award-winning national adoption magazine, is the leading adoption information source for families before, during, and after adoption.


Adoption Travel: Expenses, Packing, Logistics

Whether your trip takes you two states away or entails 20 hours on a plane, travel is a fact of life for most adoptive families. What did you do to bring your adoption travel costs down? What should every soon-to-be parent bring on his or her adoption trip? What was the most unexpectedly helpful item you brought? What do you wish you had packed? And what pre-travel planning can help ensure a smooth trip?

Please share your best advice and specific recommendations with other families. Be sure to indicate whether you adopted domestically or internationally.
