While fees for private or international adoption may range anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000, adopting from foster care is either low cost ($2,000 or less) or free. In addition many of the children adopted from foster care are eligible for adoption assistance and medical insurance (adoption subsidy) to help their parents cover the costs of caring for them.
