The question has been asked often of these adoptive parents: “How do you afford adoption?  Especially multiple adoptions?” This family has seven children, aged 6 to 21. How do they do it?

Costs of home studies, background checks, travel, application fees add up. When an adoption is in one’s heart, somehow things work out financially. Especially when one is not afraid to work.  Garage sales, employment, and then some surprises help out. Rebates, refunds, and grants have made a huge difference for this family in raising funds for adoption. Personal donations from friends and family also are much appreciated.
