The Adoption Assistance Process
Many families in the ARP who adopt children face the significant challenge of having the necessary finances available. The average domestic or foreign adoption expense is between $25,000 and $35,000. The cost alone is prohibitive for modest incomes of most pastoral staff. To help meet the financial need, a special Adoption Assistance Fund was established. It assists ARP pastors, elders, and members in good standing who are in the process of adoption. No Synod funds are used to resource the Adoption Fund. Instead it relies solely on private donations.
