Adopting a child from an orphanage can be very rewarding. Often these children come from very poor countries. Adoption provides them with opportunities that they would never have in their own countries. Parents must consider: How much does it cost to adopt a child from an orphanage?
Adoptive family magazines conducted a survey of parents who adopted their children from 2012 to 2013. This survey found that parents who adopted from orphanages paid an average of $39,000. These fees include the cost of lawyers and agency fees as well as travel costs. Adopting a child internationally can be very complicated. There are many agencies available to help with this process.
