Financing Adoption

After looking through so many agency websites I have come across several options for helping with the costs of adoption which if anyone has looked at the cost through an agency realizes its not cheap at all. Here are a few sites that Ive run across for anyone considering adoption.

Adoption is clearly God’s heart. It says in Ephesians 1:5, “…He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will.”

Great website that lists almost all options (international, foster, etc. are not listed below) including international adoption travel fees reduced at the very bottom

Just a reminder for anyone adopting that there is a 12,150 credit for the 2009 tax year for anyone with a Adjusted gross income of 170,820 to help with adoption costs that definitely would help out big time.
National Adoption Foundation
National Adoption Foundation Credit Card
A Child Awaits Foundation-low interest loan
Abba Fund-Interest Free Loan
Bank of America Adoption Loan (up to 25k)

Gods Grace Adoption Ministry-grants & fundraising
Gift of Adoption-grants up to 7500
Help us Adopt-Grants up to 15,000
Show Hope-Adoption Grants
Lifetime Adoption Foundation

Shades of Us-Fundraising Ideas

If anyone has any others please share:)

There's grant's through Steven Curtis Chapman's site; I think it is called Shaohannah's Hope, but they may have changed the name.
