it's all about the money-money

i debated about which bad rap song from the 90s to reference when titling this post. so many options (it's all about the benjamins; mo' money mo' problems; got your money; money ain't a thang...do i really need to go on?)

if money is your excuse for not adopting, you're hosed.

1--it's not really YOUR money anyway.

2--i have great news for you (and for me, because sometimes i am selfish like that). i have found THE BEST reference out there for adoption grants. HERE it is. i wish i had found this when i was looking for grants during our first adoption. hint: pay close attention to the "adoption process stage" for each grant organization. this tells you exactly when (in the adoption process) you can apply for grants (not that we really had a chance to apply in our 3-day wait, but still).

if money is your excuse for not adopting, you're hosed. 1--it's not really yiur money anyway. 2--this is a list of tons of organizations that will give you money to help with your adoption.

it looks like you can apply for a few grants before you even finish your homestudy. hooray!
