4. How much does adoption cost?
Fees can vary based on the type of adoption
Foster/adoption fees are generally low, from $0 to a few hundred are the quotes I've seen
Domestic infant adoption can be in the low $10K(ish) and go up from there, depending on the route taken. Agency adoptions tend to be on the higher end of fees due to advertising and overhead.
The fees I've seen for international adoption seem to be around $40-50K, depending on the country, amount of travel, etc.
One thing to keep in mind is that some agencies charge on a sliding scale based on income, some companies offer an adoption reimbursement program, and there is an adoption tax credit (currently non-refundable, but they're working on that)

Moving forward with domestic infant adoption!
