Tax Adoption Deductions - Afford An Adoption
The Complete Book of International Adoption: A Step by Step Guide to Finding Your Child
by Dawn Davenport

This book is for anyone thinking about any form of adoption because it has a great discussion and comparison of all forms of adoption. Although the book goes on to a thorough coverage of international adoption, The author is clear that all forms of adoption should be considered and there is no one type of adoption that is best for everyone.

The book covers everything a prospective parent needs to think about, but the author is nonjudgmental about many of the choices parent will have to make. With each choice she urges parents to be honest with themselves and to put the interest of the child first.

The first couple of chapters most helpful if you are just starting the adoption process: are you ready to move on to adoption, what type of adoption is best for us, how to choose a country, and how to choose an agency.

Can You Afford an Adoption?   
Deborah Mumm

While many adoptions can be quite costly, there are financial programs and resources available to help you if you know where to look. Here are just a few programs to think about.

You may be able to reduce the cost of your adoption by applying for an adoption tax credit on your federal tax return. The credit is up to $10,000 per adoption. This tax credit benefits moderate income families the most as it phases out high income families. The phase out starts once your adjusted gross income reaches $150,000. The tax credit is totally eliminated once gross income reaches $190,000.
