Fundraising for Adoption
Given the cost of adoption in the US, some parents decide to fundraise to help pay for it. When fundraising to afford adoption, prospective parents must be careful of how much information they share about the child. It’s also important that they take care to not overwhelm their friends and family with repeated requests.
