Adopting from foster care is one of the most affordable ways to grow your family through adoption. The cost of foster care adoption will vary depending on how you adopt. Using a private agency like Adoptions Together will cost more than pursuing a foster care adoption through a public child welfare agency, but families will feel a greater sense of preparedness and support.
At Adoptions Together, a program of Paths for Families, you can expect to pay about $11,000 to adopt a child from foster care, unless the placing state pays the fees directly to Adoptions Together. To learn more about how this works, contact us. Below is a brief breakdown of service charges you can expect when working with our team.

Adoptions Together, a program of Paths for Families, is partnered with A Fearless Life. A Fearless Life’s mission is to “find and fund a family for every adoption-eligible foster child in America”. They provide families with funding to partner with placement agencies that will match them with a foster child (or foster children) in need of adoption.

How does infant adoption work? Adoptions Together, a program of Paths for Families, offers domestic infant adoption. A domestic infant adoption is the adoption of a baby born within the United States by a family that lives in the United States. Domestic infant adoptions occur when a birth parent legally consents to an adoptive placement and an adoptive family is prepared to care for the child as their legal parents. We work with couples and single parents of every background, and we are an Innovator status partner of the Human Rights Campaign's All Children, All Families campaign.
