Adoption Fees and Expenses
International adoption can be expensive, but assistance is available. New Beginnings offers grants through our Beyond the Placement Program to families adopting a waiting child. There are other sources of grants and loans available that can help. The adoption tax credit is a big benefit and is available to most families. This can be a savings of over $13,000.
When comparing cost, New Beginnings has one of the least expensive Thai and China programs and our fees are very competitive for the Korea Program. For families that are looking for Primary Provider Services, comparing fees can be very difficult. Agencies present and package their fee in different ways, so it can be complicated to comparing expenses between agencies. New Beginnings fees are presented in a straight forward, simple fashion. We include fees for the home study fees, post-adoption, the agency and the foreign organization. We also include incidental fee that are paid to third parties in the adoption process. We provide a grand total that may look higher but rarely is. We feel that our families should know what to budget and not be lost in a complicated disclosure guessing what fees apply to them.
