Well, you have to be that one lucky person who happen to know the birth mom, who happen to have her own health insurance and also who's willing to pay for her left over the medical bills and adoption lawyer fee. So there, hope you're that lucky...

I know how you feel. My husband and I are both young and have been TTC for 9 months. We have both been to the doctor and supposedly nothing is wrong. He was able to conceive a child before but his ex-gf aborted it. Although we both have stable jobs we don't have 25,000 dollars to just drop down. I try not to think about it but it is hard especially when you see all these pregnant women or women with small babies. Unfortunately the age to adopt is about 21-25 or even 30 just about anywhere. You can't even foster through the state (at least in mine) before 21. I think the only state you can adopt before 21 is Alabama but don't quote me. I know it's hard and a lot of people on here will tell you to get a animal or that your too young, maybe you are but it's your decision not theirs.

Well, first of all in the United States you are generally required to be 25 years of age to adopt.

You can adopt through the US Foster Care system, where the cost is little to nothing. But no, to adopt internationally or adopt an infant through private adoption is going to cost a tremendous amount of money.

You can get a tax credit after the adoption is finalized to help recover some of the expenses. In some cases you can get adoption grants or special interest loans, etc. but for the most part, you have to pay the fees in order to adopt.

Have you had regular check-ups? You should discuss your concerns with your Dr.
16 is a very early age to try to have a baby. I hope you are in a committed relationship with only one partner. If not please talk to your Dr. about being checked for STD's. Some if not most STD's can lead to sterility.

The dept of children and families will usually help but why at 16 would you start having a child? are u finished with school? do you have a partner thats going to help you? do u own a house? do u have a job? sounds like you need a hobby

Terri B
To be honest, wait a few more years to have a child. Try getting a dog or cat first. It sounds like you are more wanting someone to love you rather than a baby. 16 is WAY to young and 20 isn't much better.

Peace Yo
I don't think you can adopt until you are at least 25 years of age in most states, maybe all of them. Not sure. My state is 25 minimum.

Once you are of legal age to adopt you can become a foster parent open to adoption. The state pays fees involved.
