The amount of financial support you receive depends on your state’s adoption laws.
Your adoption specialist will work to get you the maximum amount allowed so that you can focus on your pregnancy and your baby’s health without worrying about how you will pay for those important bills.
Is it OK to Get Financial Help?
Women considering adoption often wonder if it’s OK to accept financial help when placing a child for adoption. The short answer is yes — when you are working with a licensed adoption professional. American Adoptions seeks approval for all expenses through a court process to make 100% certain the expenses we help with are legally allowed in your state.
Courts approve certain expenses so there is a healthy pregnancy. Without help, some women may struggle to work in the later stages of their pregnancy, pay medical bills, and cover living expenses.
Adoption financial support lets you focus on your pregnancy without worrying about stressful expenses.
