Throughout the years we have helped a number of military families adopt. These men and women are amazing to me. I can’t imagine being away from my family on tour and all the stress related to being in war and then in the midst of that adopting a child. Some of these families have adopted special needs children. They are true heroes – multiplied!
For those in the military there are some adoption benefits. For instance:
Military service members who adopt a child under 18 years of age may be reimbursed qualified adoption expenses up to $2000 per adoptive child (up to a total of $5000 if more than one child is adopted) per calendar year.
For more information the National Military Family Association has compiled some resources in one place.
