In this post, Adoption Advisor - Tessa Reagan Vilte shares her experience with grants throughout her personal adoption journey and encouragement and advice for families hoping to secure grants for funding. “Securing grants for our adoption was not easy. In order to receive an adoption grant, you are usually completing long grant applications, and even paying some application fees. For someone going through the adoption process, more paperwork (and more money, without guaranteed success) adds tremendous stress. An advisor like Purl offers a list of active grants you can apply for and qualifications needed for each grant, which saves you a lot of time and energy in your adoption journey.” Click here to learn more about funding your adoption through grants.
