Take AF's Cost & Timing Survey to Win a Charitable Donation!
Once again, we need your help to compile the most recent adoption cost and timing data. If more than 1,000 families that adopted in 2011 or 2010 take our survey, everyone who completes it will be entered to win a $500 donation to the adoption charity of your choice. Take the survey on adoptivefamilies.com/costandtiming.
