If you choose to adopt domestically, you can save on adoption costs by adopting through your local social services agency. I adopted three children in Fulton County, NY. The older two, special needs adoptions, had adoption costs covered by Fulton County, including the lawyer’s fees. The younger child, not special needs, only had lawyer’s fees, which only amounted to $600. The home study was conducted by Fulton County Department of Social Services, and also was free.
