Frequently Asked Questions
How much does adoption cost?
In general, our adoption programs range in cost from approximately $8,500 to $43,745. It’s important to remember that grants are available and tax credits may help. Never let the fear of finances prevent you from following your calling to adopt—we have countless stories of how God provides for adoptive families! Full fee schedules are available for each of AGCI’s adoption programs on our webpage.
How long does the adoption process take?
Timelines vary from country to country and are also dependent on a family’s openness to factors such as age, special needs, and gender. Following registration of a family’s dossier, timelines can range from just a few months to several (or 5+) years.
Do all children have special needs?
While there are children who are considered “healthy” and do not have a diagnosed special need, all children who are waiting to be adopted have experienced some level of trauma by the sheer fact that they are not being raised by their biological family. Our in-depth adoption training prepares families for the adoption of children who have experienced trauma or are living with a special need. We will help define “special needs,” share more information on what that looks like for a child and guide you based on what you feel is possible for your family.
How long do we travel?
In-country travel requirements are dependent on the country program. Travel can vary between 1-2 trips and last from 5 days to 4-6 weeks.
Is my family eligible to adopt?
Eligibility varies greatly from country to country. The simplest way to learn more about our country programs is to fill out our free pre-app and talk to one of our Adoption Advisors. Our expert Adoption Advisors will help determine which adoption option is right for you.
What are the ages of children available for adoption?
The ages of children available for adoption vary and range from infants to 17 years old. The greatest need currently is for families open to adopting children over the age of 2 years old.
