Get Paid for Adoption-Related Expenses in Pennsylvania

Financial instability can be one of the many reasons why you’re considering adoption in Pennsylvania. If that’s the case, you may have had worries cross your mind such as, “Does it cost to give a child up for adoption in Pennsylvania? How much is it to put a baby up for adoption? What if I can’t afford it?”

There’s a straightforward answer to that concern: it’s always free to place a child for adoption in PA.

Many women considering adoption in Pennsylvania are struggling financially, and may be trying to provide for other children. So some women have asked, “Do you get paid for putting a baby up for adoption in Pennsylvania?”

There’s a straightforward answer to that question, as well: payment in exchange for placement of a child into an adoption is illegal. There are no adoption agencies that pay you to place your child.

However, if you are considering adoption for your baby, you may be eligible for birth parent living expenses that can cover the expenses of pregnancy, childbirth and more.
