Probably one of the biggest concerns for most families considering adoption is the cost. Unfortunately, many families stop short of pursuing adoption because they do not realize the assistance that is available to lighten the financial burden. Aside from fundraising and grants, the government has made available the Adoption Tax Credit which has been a great blessing to many families over the years.
For more details about the Adoption Tax Credit, The National Council for Adoption published an article last year explaining the Credit.
