“How much does it cost to adopt a child?” At some point in the decision making process, every adoptive family is asking this question. Some families are less price sensitive than others. Some families want to be hands off with the adoption process, have a high need for anonymity, and don’t mind spending $50,000 on adoption fees.
Most prospective adoptive families are a little more price sensitive. While the financial cost of adoption should never be the paramount factor in our analysis, we have to be prudent with everything God has entrusted to us. The holistic reality is that every adoption costs a lifetime of love, devotion, and sacrifice to … as parents … do everything we can to see a child grow and flourish. This cost can’t be quantified. Every child is made in the image of God, and investing in one single image bearer is worth all the cost.
Heart Gallery Alabama is filling a void in the adoption community. Heart Gallery is in “the business” of helping parentless child be found by prospective adoptive families. Every year, 400 to 500 parentless children age out of Alabama’s foster care system without a permanent adoptive family. The lifetime and generational tragedy of these realities are unquantifiable.
Take Tyler S. for example. Like every other child in foster care who is available for adoption, Tyler has had is biological parental rights terminated. That means Tyler needs a new adoptive family. Tyler needs a family to step up to the plate and love him as the apple of their eye. Heart Gallery’s bio on Tyler states that:
“Tyler, born August 2007, is a loving little boy. He is interested in toys and video games. He is very likeable and aims to please others. His favorite color is red and her favorite restaurant is McDonald’s. His favorite subject in school is Reading. Tyler is more successful when he has a structured routine that outlines expectations, consequences, and privileges. He is active and loves to be outdoors, playing with family and friends.
Tyler needs a family that will provide consistent structure, has patience, and unconditional love. He desires a forever home and is excited about the possibility of being a part of a permanent home.”
Heart Gallery is in the “business” of helping Tyler, and dozens of other children, be found by adoptive parents with open hearts and open homes. To find out more about individual children and sibling groups who want nothing more than to be loved, visit the Heart Gallery Alabama website today.
Oh yeah, and it doesn’t cost 1 red cent… just a lifetime of love, devotion, and sacrifice … happy scrolling!
