Many adoption agencies will not place children with single persons or couples who have not been married for several years, adopting parents
over a certain age limit, those of a specific sexual orientation, those who already have children, with couples who cannot prove infertility, live in apartments, or practice a particular religion. This
site will help you with restriction issues.
total expense for a child adoption depends on such factors as the child's age, nationality/ethnicity, whether the child has special needs, the specific child adoption agency you work with, how long you
are willing to wait, what complications arise, and in an international child adoption, what country you adopt from.
