China is easiest and cheapest to adopt from. They have laws restricitng births. Most people can only have one baby, and even then they have to have a license for it. It costs a lot of money to raise a baby in China, so most people give their babies up for adoption. Girls are especially unwanted in China. Since they can only have one, parents want a boy to carry on their name and take care of them when they're elderly.

Haven't you heard? They fire baby girls out of T-shirt cannons in China.

Have you thought ahead - AT ALL?

What are you going to tell this child that you call your son or daughter about how they came into your "forever family?" You were the easiest son we could find? You were the cheapest daughter we could find?

You really shouldn't be adopting.

i understand what you are asking.

alot of countries have strict rules on who can adopt. some countries don't allow international adopts, some countries only allow certain countries to adopt.

adopt internationally is not cheap. in the uk you can expect to pay between 5 and 15 k. that's alot of money.

to be honest i onlyknow the rules for the countries we have looked at.

your best bet it to talk to a social worker or your local health trust.

Most people don't give up their babies in China. That is a myth that someone pulled out of their butt.

International adoption is not for the faint of heart and is definitely not for someone who is looking for the "easy" route.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I suppose going to a country and stealing a child would be cheapest...maybe not easiest though.......

Just a note, the fastest lines are usually such because they might cut corners. You do not want to be part of child trafficking. If you must do international (why not try foster care adoption!), do your research and choose the most ETHICAL country

the CHEAPEST way to get a baby from another country is:

getting pregnant while on holiday. no adoption lawyers and "pesky birthmothers" to suck up all of your money.

reads insulting and ridiculous, heh? so does your question.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

There is no such thing.

Unless you want to take the risk that your child was unethically taken to an orphanage for the sole purpose of gaining "profit" for an agency.

There is no such thing as an easy or cheap international adoption.

ETA: Well, considering that I HAVE adopted internationally, I'd venture to propose that I do have some marginal idea of what I'm talking about.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

International adoption is never easy or cheap. Expect to complete at least a year of paperwork, pass stringent requirements, and pay $20,000-$60,000+... regardless of the country you choose.

That's just how international adoption is. It's expensive and complicated, and no place you could adopt from would be easy or cheap.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I am going to answer your question, since others have chosen to take offense to it instead of seeing it for what it was really intended. I think you are asking if there is a certain country with the lowest adoption fees or the easiest process. I guess "easy" is kind of subjective, since it can be different things to different people. There are countries who have very high adoption fees, such as Russia, and also they require a minimum of two trips to the country to complete your adoption. There are countries with lower fees, usually a bit below $20,000, and those countries would be China, Taiwan, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Liberia, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, and the Philippines. The process is different for each country, and most of the time there is travel involved. If you google "adoption from China" or any other country, you should be able to find out the process and requirements for that country, including cost.
