“How much does international adoption cost?” is one of the questions we hear most frequently from families who come to Carolina Adoption Services. International adoption costs vary, but families have several options when it comes to financing and funding their adoption. This page outlines five key sources in covering adoption costs:

  1. Adoption Tax Credits
  2. Adoption Grants
  3. Adoption Loans
  4. Family Fundraising
  5. Adoptive Family Benefits

Carolina Adoption Services also offers families a starting point for further research on our page Resources for Adoption Costs, where you can access more links.

We do not want finances to deter families from pursuing international adoption. We believe every family deserves to make their dream of adoption come true, and that every adoptable child deserves their dream of a forever family to come true!
