Why the Difference in the Costs?

I want to take a second to address a few questions I've gotten lately :) Let me start by saying that the situations I post here are from various agencies, which is one reason the fees are different. There is no set fee across the board for agencies to follow, though most fall within a general range throughout the country. Also, Christian Adoption Consultants isn't an agency - we help our clients through the process from start to finish. We help families find home study agencies, we help them through the home study process, we create family profiles, we help our clients find and apply for adoption grants and find creative ways to finance their adoption, we help guide them through the entire process from start to finish. We don't set agency fees and we have nothing to do with the fees for the situations we post.

As far as different fees for different ethnicities is concerned, we firmly believe every child is a precious gift from God. Agencies have to lower their fees on certain situations that are harder to place - sometimes due to ethnic background. Typically, couples who adopt in the US are Caucasian and they request Caucasian babies. There are twice as many Caucasian families trying to adopt than any other ethnicity. There is a tremendous need for families open to children of other ethnicities and we do all we can as far as lowering our fees, having discounts, etc. to help people who want to adopt and are open to ALL babies regardless of their situation be able to afford it.

I hope that helps at least a little. And as always, feel free to email me anytime for more discussion or info on this or anything else adoption-related. :)

We've been looking at the life book we made about our journey and it's amazing how that opens the doors for conversation - I worried so much about how to talk to our daughter about all of this, but it's awesome how natural it comes when it's part of your daily life and something you're proud of as a family! How are you celebrating Adoption Month? :)

A Few New Situations as of Aug. 26

Hello!! On a quick personal note, I have a renewed sense of what all of my families and what prospective adoptive parents everywhere are going through. My husband and I adopted our daughter three years ago (using Christian Adoption Consultants, actually, which is what led me to the absolute joy of doing what I do now:) and we're starting to talk seriously about adopting our second baby. So, I'm immersed in home study forms and getting the house ready for a home study and getting funds together and looking at grants, etc. It's exhausting and so exciting! :) It really has reminded me, also, why having a consultant was such a blessing to us. It was an immeasurable help and relief to have someone there for us walking us through the entire process - from finding a home study agency to creating our profile to helping us think of the right things to talk about with our daughter's birth mom. It means so much to me, as well, as an adoptive parent that everyone at Christian Adoption Consultants is an adoptive parent also. We all know on a personal basis as well as a professional one what this process is like! So, a special prayer for all of you guys just starting out! Congrats on this exciting step - it'll be the greatest blessing of your life! :)

The following are a few situations available to our clients from the agencies we work with:
Caucasian/African American baby girl due Oct. 17 in UT. Agency fees are 22,500 plus medical.

Caucasian/African American baby boy due in Oct. Agency fees are 26,500 plus 4K in assistance to mom.

African American baby boy due Oct. 5 in UT. Agency fees are 16K plus medical.

Caucasian baby boy due Jan. 11 Agency fees are 30,500 plus medical.

For more info about any of these situations, other situations available to our clients or info about the services Christian Adoption Consultants offers, email me at karalee@christianadoptionconsultants.com

Have a great day! :)

If you have questions, definitely don't hesitate to call me or email to ask! :)

Great Adoptive Families Article

You know how I love Adoptive Families magazine:) There was a great article this month that I know so many families could relate to - it is called Adoption Law: At the Hospital and you can read it HERE.

I know when we were at the hospital waiting for our daughter to be born, we wanted to be sure to follow all the proper procedures and there was a bit of fear in us about how to act and what we could and couldn't do. We were given hospital bracelets and were able to see the baby even before consent had been signed, but that was because our precious birth mom had asked if we could be there with our daughter from the beginning of her life. I know I have clients who ask lots of hospital-related questions or have concerns about how that will go, and as always in adoption, there's never an absolute, but I love the info this article shared, so I'm passing it on to you:)

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Congratulations Jennifer and Brian!

There is nothing in the world better about what I do than this:



What a miracle:) God is so good! Jennifer and Brian became clients (and friends!) May 9. They were matched with their daughter's birth mom on June 16th and their beautiful girl was born July 5! Their little firecracker:) It's amazing to see God work so quickly in bringing families together! They had been through so much in their path to their daughter, but their incredible faith in the knowledge that God would bring them the child meant for them was an inspiration. I am so honored and blessed to know them and to have played a tiny role in their sweet girl's adoption. Congratulations, Jenn and Brian!

Adoption Tax Credit Info

I've had lots of questions lately about the Adoption Tax Credit. It IS different than it used to be. The adoption tax credit has been extended until the end of 2011 and increased from $12,170 to $13,170 for adoptions occurring after January 1, 2010 (it’s retroactive). The credit is also now refundable. It used to just be a credit for whatever your tax liability was, but it seems than now you can apply the credit even if it's more than your liability, so you MAY be eligible to receive more than what you owe.
There's a great post about this (including the specific language of the bill) on the ABBA Fund's website, which you can visit HERE. I know I speak for myself and many of you when I say this is a great help! Talk with your tax person and maybe share this info with him/her. If you're able to get the full amount or even some of the money, what an awesome blessings and HELP it is in being able to adopt! :)

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Two Additional Situations

In addition to the ones posted yesterday, the agencies we work with are matching the following adoption situations:

Hispanic baby girl due in Sept. Agency fees are 28,500 plus 4K in assistance to mom.

Congrats Leah and Luke!!





This sweet, sweet couple just welcomed their beautiful baby boy! Leah and Luke signed with us March 8, were matched with this situation March 16th, and their precious son was born March 23!! I feel so blessed to have met this awesome family! And they adopted through the same agency we used to adopt our daughter almost exactly three years ago, which has been so much fun to sort of re-live together! It's been a really amazing (and FAST!) journey for them! Sending lots of love, prayers, and hugs their way:)
