Frequently Asked Questions

How much does private adoption cost?

The national average for domestic private adoption is $40,000 for one adoption. Our agency’s goal is to keep each adoption between $15,000-20,000, if you reside in the state of KY. If you reside out of KY, your estimate will likely be a little more than $20,000 because of extra steps and requirements in the process. Only our agency fee is paid up-front. All other expenses are paid when needed.

How long does the adoption process take?

Every situation is different. There is never a guarantee with adoption, even though our agency will do everything it can to complete a successful adoption. You can expect the adoption process to take an estimated 12-24 months, depending on the individuals involved and the specifics of the situation. Anything faster is a blessing!
