When you hear the terms "adoption assistance" or "adoption subsidy" what goes through your mind? Does it make you upset thinking about adoptive families getting rich, or do you feel that it's a positive that helps children be successful?
Take a moment and finish the sentence, "Sometimes I think adoption assistance is...." Finish the Sentence
I doubt I'll ever be rich.
- I am thinking of adopting after my husband and I are both done with our B.S degrees and are in our chosen profession. When we are settled, and ready we will be adopting to expand our family and not for the small monetary gain. Any money we do receive will be used for the child in a trust fund/college fund or for extensive medical, dental or vision problems that our private insurance doesn't cover, which our child will be on, once the adoption is finalized. Anyone who adopts for the money is clearly not doing it for the right reasons. Taking care of a child and properly providing for them and their wants and needs costs so much more then the State is going to give you each month.

- A way to make adoption affordable for the family, and giving the child security of permanancy and a small means of support. If people think anyone gets rich off of adoption subsidy they dont have a clue what they are talking about.
