We’ve all got a list, don’t we?
“I’m infertile” used to be at the top of mine.
Now it’s been replaced with this: “Helpusadopt.org does not have enough money to award grants to every deserving applicant.”
It kills me to say that out loud.
But it’s the truth.
It is my dream that someday I can say it isn’t so.
But for now it is.
And why does Helpusadopt.org have so many applicants?????
Because the average cost of an adoption is $30,000+ and the median household income in our country is $52,000…
You do the math.
It doesn’t jive.
The cost of adoption is standing in the way of many people becoming parents and worse yet—it is standing in the way of many children finding the homes they so deserve.
And that my friends is something that many just don’t want to say out loud.
