What You Can Do Right Now

Information is great. But taking small steps now can lead to big changes.
  • Today
  • Take a look at your current financial situation. Use our tools “Personal Balance Sheet” and “Cash Flow Budget Template” to get down on paper your assets and liabilities as well as your income and expenses. Seeing this in black-and-white will tell you more about your current financial ability to support a child.
  • Next Week
  • Research the various adoption processes and decide which one is right for you and your family.
  • In the Next Few Months
  • Meet with an adoption agency or other expert to get a firm understanding of the costs associated with your adoption path.
  • Use our tool “SMART Goal Worksheet” to devise a savings plan to help you save for adoption expenses.
  • You don’t necessarily need to pay for all of the adoption expenses yourself. There are resources out there with missions that support adoption and they might assist you through grants or loans.
