Adoption Home Study | If you are just getting started in the adoption process, you may quickly be realizing just how expensive it can be. In addition to many other costs, an adoption home study can set you back somewhere in the neighborhood of $10,000. That’s a lot of money, and it can make adoption an impossible goal for some people. 

An Alternative Option

For those who simply aren’t going to be able to afford or don’t want to shell out $10,000 for an adoption home study, it is possible to take another path. If you decide to become a resource parent, you can have a home study completed for FREE – saving you that entire expense. Once the process is completed, you will have the opportunity to serve as a foster parent to children who are at-risk and need a safe place to call home. 

Possibility for Adoption

Not only will you be able to enjoy the many valuable moments that come along with being a resource parent, but you also may wind up adopting in the long run. While reunification is the first goal of the foster system, that is not going to be possible in some cases. For children who are not going to be reunified with their families, adoption then becomes the goal – and by saving on your adoption home study by becoming a resource parent, you may be able to adopt through the foster program when all is said and done.
