i just wanna say i hate how people will will treat us like the ugly americans when we still have good people out there and H****** saying that stuff about us makes her look like the ugly australian! it's not like we're proud of the price of adoptees so leave us alone!!! babies are treated just the same!! i never knew how racist people are now!
and yeah, that first answer is right about the whole adoption thing
Adoption in Australia is done as a social service for the children, so the costs are minimal.
It's only the USA that allows profits to be made off the backs of babes because babies are treated as commodities there.
The fee's will be based on if you chose to go local or inter-country adoption. (Private adoptions are illegal.)
You're best bet is to call social services in QLD and make your inqiries with them as fee's change due to the current assessment programs (if anything new is required etc) for potential adoptive parents. Thats why I can't just give a $$$ figure. Adoption in Australia is non-profit, and done based on the needs of the child.
