The Cost of Infant Adoption

Cost may be at the top of your mind when deciding whether adoption is right for your family. And while costs vary by state, you may find that the bottom line is less than you think. This is especially the case when you consider the adoption tax credit, employer benefits and other sources of aid like Show Hope's adoption grants. You will receive full adoption fee information when you contact your local Bethany office and attend an informational meeting.

Open Adoption: Not All Adoption Plans are the Same

Today, most adoptions have some level of openness between the birth and adoptive family. Bethany works with both the expectant and adoptive parents to develop a relationship.The amount of contact varies, but closed adoptions with no contact are very rare.

Check out the videos below to hear from Bethany families about their adoption journeys.

More About Bethany Adoptions

Adoption can be a beautiful reflection of the way God loves all His children. There are many reasons an expectant parent will choose adoption for their child. They may feel that they are not able to parent at this time in their lives and that adoption is the very best choice. We work with both adoptive and expectant parents to create a plan that works best for them and for the future of the child.
