You Have to be Rich to Adopt

There are many reasons why families don’t pursue an adoption. The ones we hear most often are that “we can’t afford to adopt” or that you “have to be rich to adopt.”

You don’t have to be rich to adopt, nor do you have to have copious amounts of money in savings. All that is required is that you meet poverty guidelines and you basically make more money than you spend, meaning that you have discretionary income that can be re-allocated towards the cost of living for a child.

The average income of adoptive parents is $75,000-150,000. This is where planning and budgeting is key. At Beacon House, we have an Adoption Finance coach to assist families in working towards their financial goals.
