Fees paid to CAROLINA HOPE Christian Adoption Agency are non-refundable. In the event that an adoption cannot go through, the agency will apply your administrative fee toward the next adoption and will charge you no further administrative fees. You, as adoptive parents, must assume all costs and risks associated with an international adoption. Such risks include delays, extra, unforeseen expenses, medical problems with the child assigned to you, and a country closing its doors to adoption. Your understanding of these risks is a requirement established also by Immigration and Naturalization Services and are/will be addressed in your international home study.

Children adopted internationally may have some minor health concerns or developmental delays. These problems are usually corrected by proper care. The agency suggests that when you receive a medical report and video/picture of your child, you send the video and report to a physician who specializes in the evaluation of international children. The fees, which are usually very reasonable, are paid directly to the medical organization. CAROLINA HOPE Christian Adoption Agency will provide a list of these physicians.

As discussed, there can be delays in the process, and CAROLINA HOPE Christian Adoption Agency will do all that it can to expedite the process for you. Also, the agency seeks to keep its fees reasonable and your expenses as low as possible.

I/WE CERTIFY BY SIGNING BELOW THAT I/WE GIVE CONSENT AND AGREEMENT TO THE ABOVE AND THAT ALL INFORMATION GIVEN IN THIS APPLICATION IS CORRECT TO THE BEST OF MY/OUR KNOWEDGE AND ABILITY. I/WE ALSO AGREE TO THE TERMS SPECIFIED IN THIS APPLICATION FORM.
