Help with Funding Your Adoption


One of the biggest issues for adoptive parents is funding. Here are a few helpful resources.

One of the biggest areas that families struggle with throughout the adoption process is the issue of finances.

We understand that funding an adoption, especially an international adoption, is very expensive, and we are committed to work with you in exploring options to make your adoption more affordable. We encourage couples to apply for grants including through Bethany’s Caring Connection ministry. Caring Connection is another source of funding available to those families who qualify and are pursuing the adoption of a child with special placement needs.

Another option that your Bethany counselor can help you explore is the Adoption Tax Credit. Your family may qualify to receive tax deductions to help with funding as you go through the adoption process.

We recommend that couples pursuing an adoption take some time to research different grants or adoption loan programs to help fund their adoption. The time you dedicate may end up being an investment in your adoption and your financial future.

There are also a few resources that we can offer to help families through this process. Some sources of financial assistance that we generally recommend to couples include:

  • Lifesong for Orphans: This program provides grant-matching options for parents, interest-free loans, or fundraising service projects.
  • Brittany’s Hope: This foundation is a nonprofit that aids in funding international adoptions of children with special needs through grant matching.
  • American Christian Credit Union: This organization provides loans for Christian individuals or ministries as they enhance God’s kingdom. These loans may vary in amount based on individual needs.
  • Show Hope: This organization provides grants to those whose goal is to meet the needs of orphans around the world.
