The Military and Adoption

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.

  1. My husband and I are from North Carolina but are serving as missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Tanzania, East Africa. Do you know what the adoption process looks like from overseas?

    Thanks and God bless!
