Often one of the largest obstacles for families who are considering international adoption is the cost. At OFY we understand that funding an adoption, especially an international adoption, is very expensive. While many individuals and couples have the desire, skills and resources to care for a child, the initial costs keep them from adopting. Although the expenses can seem overwhelming, we are committed to helping families explore options to make adoption more affordable. Fortunately, there are some funding sources available to help with the cost of adoption.
