How much does it cost to adopt a newborn girl?

Like most agencies the IAC does not allow families to chose the gender of the baby they will adopt. Many adoption attorneys do allow this including Adopt Help. The reason so many agencies don't allow this is because we match adoptive parents and birthparents, and do not have a waiting list of babies needing to be adopted. When you match with a birthparent, we don't want to distress or cause her anxiety over an aspect she doesn't have control over, like the gender of her baby.

The costs of adopting through the IAC depend on the income of your family. The IAC has a sliding scale for our fees. You can find this information at:
