How to Afford Adoption: LightStream

LightStream’s Adoption Loans

Lifetime Adoption is a domestic open adoption agency. We believe that a lack of finances should never keep families from their dream of adopting a baby. Yet we still realize that the cost of adoption in the United States can be a barrier for many couples. Read on to learn more about how to afford adoption.

An adoption loan is a practical solution to help make your adoption affordable. When you adopt a child, there are adoption expenses that arise during the adoption process. Fortunately, there are methods of many types of adoption assistance and adoption benefits, such as adoption tax credits, adoption grants, and more. In reality, however, adoption grants can be limited or hard to get, especially if you are looking for funds at the last minute.  An adoption loan can be a reliable source of funding if needed.

Sometimes, we have worked with potential adoptive parents who tell us “We don’t want to get a loan for adoption.”  They would rather take time filling out grant applications and hoping other means come through than taking a part-time job or applying for a loan.  The reality is that many things in life require us to get help with funding — homes, cars, boats, vacations, even medical expenses such as infertility treatments.  Adoption is no different.  

Lifetime Adoption has worked with LightStream, a Division of SunTrust Bank, to offer a loan program specifically for parents who want to adopt. We encourage you to check out the LightStream Adoption Loan program. Their adoption loans offer adoption assistance financing programs to make it possible for you to realize your dream of adopting a baby or child. You can pay for any aspect of your adoption with a LightStream loan. The loan may be used to pay adoption professionals, to prepare your baby’s nursery, for adoption travel, and for birth mother expenses

We’re eager to share LightStream’s affordable solution for couples hoping to adopt. Here are the details about LightStream’s Adoption Loan:

“Hi everyone! I went to visit Scott and Carma at their home this weekend to complete a home study and I wanted to share how happy they are with Lifetime. Both Scott and Carma said from the moment they started the process with Lifetime, they felt welcomed and informed. They shared that everyone has been lovely and they feel like they are in good hands. This family is also listening well. Home study is in process and they are working on video and profiles which will be done very soon. To top it off they have listened to many of the webinars already and love the education component. So Kudos to team Lifetime for being all that we strive to be. Kind, informative and helpful.”
