The cost of full-service embryo adoption is roughly $8,000, not including additional costs for transracial adoption or out-of-state applicants. Here’s a breakdown of what that payment supports: New Parent Seminar
The New Parent Seminar is a required education session for all prospective adoptive families. The seminar is your first glimpse into adoption with ASC, and covers education, stats and stories, along with general adoption law and agency policies.Registration Fee
During registration, you’ll provide information about your family, your personal and family medical history, and your finances as well as complete a background check. The registration fee covers the cost of processing that information, and is invoiced at the time of signup. Home Study
$2,500 + federal mileage
ASC provides your mandatory home study to approve you as adoptive parents. You’ll also get educational materials and attend a class to prepare you and your partner for the home study. This fee is due when you attend the Adoption Prep Meeting.Transracial Adoption Education
If you’re adopting outside your race, you’ll need additional education to prepare you for transracial parenting. This fee lets us offer support from some of the most well respected names in transracial adoption.Non-Indiana Residents Application Fee
If you don’t live in Indiana, ASC will work with a home study provider in your home state to make sure your adoption checks all the legal boxes your state might require. This fee covers that process as well as education and support from ASC.Activation Fee
With the information you submit about you and your partner, our team will put together a professional family color profile to market you to embryo donors. The activation fee covers the creation of that profile, as well as the administration of activating you in our system. This fee is due when you attend the New Parent Adoption Prep Meeting.Match Fee
While you are active with ASC, we work hard to find donors who match your preferences and work with them to see if the match is a good fit for both parties. This fee covers the cost of that service, and is due when you match with a donor.Legal Fees
$1,850 – 2,250
You will need to work with two attorneys; one for donor and one for adopting.Post-Placement Fee
The post-placement fee is invoiced at 8 weeks post-delivery, and includes:
- Wrap-Up Call with ASC — At this point, your post-placement relationship plan will be in place. During this call, we will discuss that plan and coach you through the update schedule.
- Support Calls with Donor — During this call, ASC and the embryo donor will discuss the post-placement relationship plan and coach the biological family through the update schedule.
