Offers families a chance to adopt embryos (actual children in a frozen state) waiting for a home. 
Very inexpensive and a wonderful option!


NOTE:  Under current tax law, the I.R.S. offers tax credits for qualified adoption expenses]
to help offset the financial burden to adoptive families.  Adoptive parents might be eligible
to claim as much as $13,170 from the federal government.These tax credits are refundalbe--
meaning you get the cash back (minus any taxes owed) which can be a significant help in
the overall cost. 

NOTE:  Many employers offer adoption benefits as part of their employee compensation
program to help cover a portion of your adoption expenses.  Talk to your human resources
department to determine if these benefits are available to you.

NOTE:  For a breakdown of the costs you can expect from all types of adoption, (and to
learn about programs that offer financial aid), visit www.adopting.org.  Another alternative
is to adopt a child who is in foster care. Because there are so many children in the system,
many states reduce or waive adoption fees.  Federal and state assistance programs can
help futher.
