Becoming a parent is not easy in any way. Every day, many future parents start the long and complex process of adoption in order to open the doors of their home to a child in need of one. This isn’t always easy. In fact, it is never easy, with all the screening, tests, interviews, etc. Plus, all the paperwork and the money you must prepare in order to finally be able to take the child home. If you are thinking of adoption, you must be prepared for all of that as you cannot quit halfway through.
You must decide on so many things before you actually make the call and start the adoption process. First of all, do you want to adopt from another country? If so, which one and why?

It is wise to consider the easiest countries to adopt from in 2017, as the adoption process can be quite efficient and fast compared to other countries. For example, if you decide to adopt from South Korea, you will find yourself pleased with how smooth the entire process is. At least that’s the case for most adoptions, but of course, it all depends on who you are and whether you fulfill the requirements of the country you are seeking to adopt from.
But what concerns most adoptive parents is the cost of adopting a child. So many children worldwide are in need of a loving home, and yet so few parents can afford such an expensive adoption process even though they are willing to provide a home for those children in need.
According to The Washington Post, adoption can cost about $30,000 or even more. Many countries require adoptive parents to travel and spend a certain amount of time in their country, which cost a lot of money. There are legal fees as well, and all of this can prevent a great number of couples or individuals from becoming parents. Private adoptions which can generally cost less are difficult to organize, and so you are left with very little options. Earlier, we wrote about 5 ways to adopt a child without a lot of money, so I recommend reading about them, as perhaps you’ll find a solution.
Fortunately, there are certain countries which do not require you to be rich to adopt. It is not exactly free but it is manageable, and we are happy to present you with these countries. Hopefully, more people who are willing to provide a home for orphans will be able to do so in the future. In the meantime, we gathered information from America World Adoption and a few other websites, as you will see further on the list, in order to provide a list of least expensive countries. We also ranked them according to the cost of adoption but bear in mind that the numbers can vary and change so remember that you should check with different agencies in order to determine what exactly do adoption fees include. None of these countries is exactly inexpensive but compared with many other countries; they do have more reasonable costs. We are starting with Jamaica which is ranked 7th due to the lack of precise information.
