Adoption Fees and Financial Resources

One Wide Horizons’ family has shown that Adoption Can Be Affordable–  not just once, but 4 times!

 “We have been so blessed to adopt our four daughters in the space of less than six years while relying on Wide Horizons Subsidies, online fundraising, adoption grants, and personal donations. It definitely took a lot of time, teamwork, energy and serious commitment. It was worth all of it because we were able to adopt our beautiful daughters!”

We understand that for most families, adoption is a significant financial undertaking. Wide Horizons For Children is transparent about all adoption fees– not just what you pay to WHFC. Our Adoption Information Guide  provides detailed fee information help you plan and budget for your adoption. Adoption fees can range from $30,000-$50,000 depending on the program you select.  

International Adoption Fees

Fees are due at the major milestones of your adoption and are often spread out over 18-36 months. 


Domestic Adoption Fees

The total cost for domestic adoptions depends on whether a family is matched with a child directly through Wide Horizons For Children or through a second adoption agency.


Financial Resources

There are many opportunities for you to make your child’s adoption more affordable, including subsidies through Wide Horizons For Children, as well as tax credits and deductions, general adoption grants, loans, adoption benefits in the workplace and other sources of funding.
