Adoption costs can range from $0 to more than $50,000. What are the expenses associated with each route—domestic newborn, foster adoption, and international—and how are families financing their adoptions?

In this webinar, we presented the results of the 2013-2014 Adoption Cost & Timing Survey, and Denise M. Bierly, Esq., Director of Adoption of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, and Sue Orban, of Lutheran Social Service/Children’s Home Society of Minnesota, discussed which expense categories families have control over, strategies for meeting the total costs of adoption, how to claim the adoption tax credit, adoption loans and grants, and more.

The Adoptive Families Adoption Costs Webinar with Denise M. Bierly, Esq., and Sue Orban took place on Thursday, September 24, 1-2pm ET.
