Hello! I've been through here a couple times but I believe my DH and I will be looking into adoption soon. We have a 6 month old currently and plan on having more of our own but have recently been pulled in the direction of adoption as well. I've been doing a lot of research on the web and would just like to ask what should we know from those of you who have adopted internationally?

Costs of various countries...

traveling...

I've been looking into China because we've been there before and been to a couple of orphanages but it seems like each parent has to be at least 30 years old? DH will be 30 next year but I'm only 23...Hong Kong seems to be a lot more lenient...was also thinking of Vietnam? we've been there as well.

Okay sorry for babbling. I guess just hearing some of your experiences would be helpful.

Oh! and is there financial aid available for adopting internationally?

Thanks for the help.
