If you are thinking about adopting, the process can be very overwhelming.
Where to start? What to ask? How much will it cost? What will people think? The list is endless.
Enter Founder and President of Helpusadopt.org, Becky Fawcett, and you’ve made one giant leap in the right direction. As the proud mother of 2 adopted children, Becky has dedicated her life to helping navigate the adoption process. In our latest Momcast, Becky addressed the top 10 things to know about adoption – and so much more.
With helpusadopt.org, Becky created a grant program that helps couples/individuals (regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, marital status or sexual orientation) with the cost of their adoptions by awarding grants of up to $15,000. They support domestic, international and foster care adoptions and do not charge applicants to apply.
In case you missed it, you can listen to the re-play of the Momcast here.
Becky covered adoption topics such as International vs. Domestic, attorney or agency, and reducing the stigma and secrecy that often surrounds it.
