Couple who are pleading for help with financial cost of adopting a baby.

A spiritual couple is pleading for help in deferring the financial costs of adopting a baby.

My husband and I are very spiritual people who believe in prayer and that God hears our prayers. We try to live a honest and righteous life. We have been trying to get pregnant for over 10 years now and to our sadness we have failed. We are now seeking to adopt a baby. We have a big problem in that the expenses for adopting a healthy newborn is quite expensive. It ranges between $25,000 - $30,000. We so desperately need help in the financial burden of covering the costs of adoption. Is there any one out there that could help in the financial costs? Or, is there any one who knows of an organization of person that would be willing to help us? My husband and I are both good people who want so much to be a good mother and father. We consider it to be the most important gift we could ever have. We are praying for this baby to come however, we cannot do it without your help and your prayers. We know that prayer changes all things and that miracles do happen.
Love, baby4us

I pray that by now you are in the process of adopting and have found some financial help. But as some others have suggested you may ask your church, or The National Adoption Foundation, also you may want to become foster parents first then adopt. My friend does this. He and his wife have now adopted 3 beautiful children. They are still foster parents as well but I will ask him for any agencies that helped them.

I too was in your situation. I had paid an agency over $20,000 and they swindled me. At first I blamed God, then I prayed. God lead me to become
a Foster parent and now I am an adoptive Mom. No cost to me and the rewards have been ten fold! Parenting an older child is a challenge but it is so rewarding. Let go and let God lead you.

I pray that your dreams of adopting and getting the financial help to do so have come true. We have adopted 3 beautiful children. We are wanting to adopt more. We have run into the financial burden also. It is very expensive. Any prayers for financial support would be helpful. Also prayers for the understanding of others. Some people feel we have enough children and should be grateful and others feel that if we want to adopt they should not have to help with the costs. I just wish they would understand that God has called us to this and we have the room in our hearts but we don't have thousands of dollars laying around. thanks for your prayers and thoughts. I really hope and pray you have a precious child.

I pray that you are able to fulfill your dreams of becoming parents. My husband and I have four children, two adopted from India and Korea. International adoption can be less expensive than domestic private adoptions in many cases. We did a lot of fundraising for both of our adoptions, and also took out an adoption loan. Our two adopted children both had a physical difference, and so their fees were also reduced. Our daughter was born without arms, and our son was born without forearms. They are both happy, healthy children who would have had a very restricted life in their birth countries. There are many things that are considered special needs, including correctable conditions or even birthmarks. You may consider praying about what you are willing to accept in a child, or if you are open to a child who is a different race. There are some domestic programs that have african american programs with reduced fees. Sadly, their is a shortage of adoptive parents for these infants, and the costs I have seen are between 9-12,000. I pray that God will lead you to the child who is waiting for you. Sincerely,
