How Does Making an Adoption Plan Change me Financially?
Are you struggling financially and considering making an adoption plan for your baby? A common reason women consider adoption is financial stress. Maybe your concerned about not being able to provide for your child financially. We first want you to know that making a plan for your child is not giving up! You are thinking through all of your options to determine what is best for you and your baby. This often leads to thinking about money. Some women facing unexpected pregnancies wonder if they can be paid for placing their baby for adoption.

The process of adoption is completely free for you. If you choose to make an adoption plan, you will not have to pay anything to receive options counseling or to make the adoption plan. Also, it is not legal to accept payment for placing your baby for adoption.
