This morning the press is screaming with Sandra Bullock’s new adopted child Louis Bardo Bullock. What does an adoption cost these days?
Bullock’s son is a 3½-month-old born in New Orleans. Domestic adoptions such as this typically cost the following:
Income Placement Fee
$70,000 to $89,999. $15,000
In addition to the sliding-scale placement fee, prospective parents are required to take a home study course which costs $1450.
For those interested in international adoptions, you’ll need to do the $1450 home study course, pay an agency fee of $6600, pay administrative fees of $1250, pay a fee to the country from which the child is adopted, required travel expenses, and a $350 post-placement service report.
Now, if anyone asks you about adoption, you can enlighten them to the costs involved.
