If you go through foster care it's free and you even get the tax credit Tanya, you just have to be prepared to have several short or long term placements before it works out... I know i couldn't do it. Although depending on your county it can be easier, some agencies will only place you with kids that are close to TPR etc. I know I looked into that first, but I was told that our county was horrible and was really going for reunification at all costs... we really didn't want to deal with that.

I've had the opposite experience when it comes to transracial adoption, personally. My agency was encouraging everyone to join the AA program, and was cutting fees for adopting AA children (because not many families were open to AA children - got to keep in mind it was in a very white area). But there's a ton of people who are extremely offended because AA children are 'cheaper'. You really can't win.

Yoko I'm not seeing any negative view about adoption in this thread.
