Adoption Financing

Let's Face it...Adoption is Expensive

Adoption Financing Options

Adoption is one of the most beautiful things that any Expectant Parent and Hopeful Adoptive Family can do in their lives. Everyone in the process is blessed by the love that all parties share for the health and well-being of the children involved. Unfortunately, there are many costs involved in the entire adoption process. We completely understand how expensive these fees can become and how they can cause a financial burden for some. We do not believe that a lack of finances should be a road-block in a family’s desire to complete their family through adoption. So to help families looking to adopt, we have compiled an extensive list of third-party grants and institutions that you can contact for financial assistance for your adoption journey.


A financial resource for those seeking loans for international adoptions and foster care adoptions. Their new Pilot Program for Domestic Adoption Grants is open to couples or singles adopting a child between the ages of 2-17, special needs children of all ages, and siblings groups.
This non-profit funding platform helps families raise money to pay for adoption costs. Check out how it works by visiting their website.
Providing adoption finance and coaching services to adoption professionals, corporations, and prospective adoptive families. Visit our website for more information.
Adopting a child is a special event for the Christian family. While many financial institutions do not understand the unique situation surrounding the adoption process, ACCU chooses to respond to those needs. As part of their continuing effort to “reach, serve and teach,” they are happy to offer Adoption Loans.
The foundation’s mission is to inspire people to orphan care around the world through both adoption and adoption support. They will award a grant every year to a family that is selected. For more information, please visit their website.
Both Hands helps families fundraise for their adoptions. A family gathers a team of volunteers and Both Hands coaches them to coordinate a service project fixing up a widow’s home. Similar to a 5k race, the volunteer team sends letters to raise sponsorship for their day of service. However, instead of running, the team serves a widow in their community.

Service With Compassion

Our amazing team strives to encourage families along with this unique journey. ASC’s collection of personal stories, written by adoptive parents, adoptees, birth parents, and others touched by adoption demonstrates the value of a supportive community. We hope the stories will encourage and inspire you on your adoption journey.

We feel so fortunate to have found and worked with Adoption by Shepherd Care for our adoption journey.

Choosing an agency was a difficult task for us. It was important to us that we worked with people who made us feel confident but kept our expectations realistic. We were looking for an organization that was warm, personable, and professional and had a lot of experience in the field. In talking with other agencies, it was Adoption by Shepherd Care that met all of these essential components we were looking for.

The exceptional service and professionalism that we received from everyone at Adoption by Shepherd Care were above and beyond what we expected. Every team member that we had contact with made us feel welcome and comfortable. The first time we attended their office, everyone knew us by name when we entered, and it truly made us feel like part of a family.

When we were matched with our daughter, we were paired up with an extraordinary caseworker. She was compassionate, friendly, warm, and her communication was remarkable. We always felt informed, and like she truly cared about us throughout the journey. The special way in which she could anticipate our emotions throughout the whole process and handled every aspect with a calm and gentle approach made us feel reassured, and calmed us through the complexities and uncertainties of the adoption process.

What really impressed us about Adoption by Shepherd Care was the amazing support that they provide to the birthmothers/fathers. Through our adoption experience, we were fortunate to get to know the birth family of our daughter, and seeing the genuine respect, compassion, and support that they received was profound and deeply felt.

It is comforting to know that there is an agency like Adoption by Shepherd Care, who is so devoted to their work. We enjoyed the entire invaluable team of helpers with their warmth and humor, their sincerity, and their dedication to both the birth mothers/families and adoptive families. We have complete heartfelt gratitude to everyone at Adoption by Shepherd Care for holding us so warmly, caring, and open-hearted through our adoption journey.

We highly recommend Adoption by Shepherd Care as an adoption agency and hope that many others can experience the wonderful joy that we were blessed with.

ASC was an absolutely incredible agency to work with. We got to know the staff personally even though we were corresponding internationally. They knew us by name and were always available for our questions and help. The support that they provide on BOTH sides for the adoptive and birth families is something I have never heard of outside of ASC. Both sides felt cared for, supported, fully informed, and not rushed or pressured at any point. Relationships between the birth families and adoptive parents are encouraged, facilitated, and fostered. Thanks to them, we enjoy a strong and amazing relationship with our child’s family. There are so many ways for adoption to be scary and confusing, but that wasn’t our experience. 10/10 recommend forever.

We connected with ABSC through Christian Adoption Consultants. From the first phone call we felt this was the agency for us. The care they show for mothers during the pregnancy and after birth was something we were drawn to.

Throughout the process Nidia was amazing. Talking us through expectations, next steps, how to pray for all involved and holding our hand through the process. The management of funds, the care for mothers and potential adoptive families was second to none. We are thankful for Nidia and the attention to detail and care she showed throughout this process. Our son is 14 weeks old, and Nidia continues to support us post placement. Thank you, Adoptions by Shepard Care, for helping us grow our family.

We are very fortunate to have been connected to Adoption by Shepherd Care. Terri was fantastic to work with and truly helped ease our concerns and walk us through everything, especially with the unknown of adopting during the beginning of the pandemic.

They also connected us with other families who had similar birth stories for their adoptive child. Lastly they provided great resources to help us navigate a world that was unknown to us, especially related to open adoption which I’m so thankful we did.

We had an amazing experience with Adoption by shepherd care. We began our adoption journey in 2021 and we are holding our baby in our arms now.

ASC held our hands every step of the way. They became like family to us and we highly recommend them. We cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us.

If we decide to keep growing our family we will definitely do it with them again.

Thank you to everyone we worked with at Adoption by Shepherd Care… Thank you to everyone we worked with at Adoption by Shepherd Care.

The best decision ever made was to contact ASC.… The best decision ever made was to contact ASC. I remember the moment I walked inside their office and immediately felt like I had entered into someone’s living room. The decor, furniture, and family pictures felt so “homely”. Each and every person encountered (Rose, Marcy, Nidia, Claudia, and Heidi) made us feel like a part of their immediate family. They patiently explained the process, guided us through the paperwork, accommodated our schedules, followed up with the different agencies, and diligently ensured that everything was completed in an expedited manner. They shared in the accomplishment of every milestone. They held our hands, lifted us up, reassured us when we felt discouraged, but also laughed cried and pushed us as we walked the uphill road. Upon reaching the peak…they celebrated with us as if our baby boy were their own. Thank you for allowing us to finally experience parenthood. Thank you for the work that you do, the services you provide, and the care in which you do it.

After dealing with infertility for several years, Erin and I decided that adoption would be the best way to grow our family. One of our friends that had been through the adoption process recommended “Adoption by Shepherd Care”. From the first Skype meeting we had with Terri, we were impressed with the number of years she and the whole organization had been helping people with adoption. Terri was a wealth of insight and encouragement to us as we applied and began to wait for “the call”. Once the day came and we got our call, the whole staff was so supportive through the whirlwind that followed! There was no such thing as “office hours” as their team began to help with everything from the moment our son was born, to leaving the hospital with signed papers, to the time we left the state, to working with the birth parents a year after our adoption. We have truly been known and loved by those at “Adoption by Shepherd Care” that went through this whole process with us!
