All adoptions are through the government making it a costly ordeal which will leave many children in the Child Welfare System all their lives.
As a child grows up in the system, they are learning about how the government is paying for them to live. If a child is not adopted before the time that they turn 18, that young adult will then have a sense of government dependency.
If the cost of adoption were to go down, then more children could be adopted and not have to be put into situations of dependency. Each child needs to learn from a young age how to take care of themselves and in the Child Welfare System, it is harder to learn this.
There are so many families in the United States that are capable to adopt more then one child but are not financially able to. This is leaving more lives in the hands of the government.
