Well, we’ve started the process to adopt again, this time through Catholic Charities in our state. We want to adopt from Foster Care, but use CC as a placement agency, because they have such an excellent reputation for ethical adoptions in our area.
The problem is that we need to come up with $5000 for a homestudy and legal fees, and we simply do not have this sum of money saved.
Does anybody have any ideas for adoption fundraising that don’t involve either my husband getting a second job, or me getting a job? Our daughter has special needs, and me getting a job is simply not an option-- her education and services require heavy parental involvement. My husband’s current job contract has a clause which stipulates he cannot hold a second job.
Anybody been through this before? Anybody done foster-to-adopt through a state and had these associated costs?
