Domestic Adoption Program FeesTo enter the Domestic Program for placement services:
- Clients pay 35% of the placement fee at the time you enter into the placement program (after your home study has been finalized). The program deposit is nonrefundable, and is applied toward the placement fee. At the time an infant is placed with an adoptive family, the remaining fees will be due.
- The placement fee is on a sliding scale and is set according to net worth, if self employed, or gross annual income and additional financial information as established at home study.

It is the policy of Adoptions Together that adoption should be available to families from a broad socio-economic range. The goal of the agency is to help families explore their resources and overcome those obstacles.
We primarily place African American infants. Adopters seeking children of other races can complete their home study with Adoptions Together and services in exploring options outside of our traditional placement program.
