This blog is the begining of our adoption journey together. After four years of infertility we feel called to adopt a child into our home. This blog is dedicated to track and share our journey with our families, friends and community. Please feel free to share and ask questions! 1 Peter 4:10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.

So how much does adoption cost anyway????

We are looking into adoption with St. Elizabeth Colman /Catholic Charities in Indianapolis and also a local agency in Lafayette called Gifts of Grace. Now the additional fees vary depending on whether or not the birthmother has Medicaid or Insurance or No Insurance, it also includes Attorney fees, post adoption counseling for the birthmother and several other items. You can check out the details at each of the websites at the links section of the blog. The chart below is my interpretation of the info found on the websites.

If anyone has any good fundraising ideas we could do over the next year please comment and let us know. We are open for any suggestions. Thanks !!!

Peace ,  Amanda
