Okay so I found a great agency that I want to go through. I havent filled out an application because I'm not sure if you have to have the home-study dont and we cant do one right now. They said they have payment plans and financial assistance available.They also said they have grants for people that fit certain criteria which we do!! So my questions about that are: If we are able to do payment plans would we still be able to get a grant? Do you have to have everything payed for before the adoption is final? If we do the payment plans would we still be able to get the tax credits and deductions? I'm just really confused about the order of all that. Sorry if they're dumb questions. It is on my heart so badly to adopt and when I read all that I got so excited that it seems so close.
Other questions-Do you have to raise your kids certain ways?For example-would they only let you adopt if you send your kids to public schools?What about if we're a natural health family? (only go to doctors for emergencies)
Thanks SOOO much in advance for any help you can give me

They cannot dictate how you raise your children once the adoption is final (other than normal dictation like not abusing them, etc.). The only caveat to that would be if you have an adoption agreement between the birthparents and yourself that is written into the court order. Those are rare though and you certainly don't have to agree to that.

I don't know the answers to the financial questions. I'd fill out the application and just see. I bet they'd answer more questions than we could.

but once you fill out the application is there a time limit that you have to adopt by?

I don't think so. The homestudy will expire though. The time on those varies. Usually 1-2 years.
