You Can Adopt Without Debt

Adopt Without Debt
When I heard Author Julie Gumm had a new edition of Adopt Without Debt, I knew had to get my hands on it!

The first book was a helpful guide during our first round with the adoption process.

Gumm's new edition, You Can Adoption Without Debt: Creative Ways to Cover the Cost of Adoption, is a serious gold mine of information surrounding adoption grants, fundraising tips for garage sales and pancake breakfasts -- even karaoke nights [seriously, someone needs to do this and invite me].
Adopt Without Debt
Statistics show the average cost of a domestic infant adoption costs between $20,000 - $50,000 -- sometimes more.

For a lot of people, that's more than an entire year's salary!

Fees vary for different reasons: Attorney and agency fees, travel expenses, court costs, birth parent care and counseling, hospital stays, etc.

But you guys, I'm telling you:

Don't be discouraged.

There are creative ways to afford the adoption process.
And this book has a wealth of information.

I find it so valuable that I'm chomping at the bit to give a copy away!

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the adoption process, enter to win a FREE copy of this book.

In my opinion, it's a must-have for anyone looking to grow their family through adoption.

  1. As adoption veterans (five journeys), we have adopted both with debt and without. We live frugally in many ways--buying clothes at thrift stores, making homemade from scratch meals, using appliances and furniture until they are completely dead. . ..I am intrigued by this book and would love a chance to read it!

    1. I know sometimes it can be hard to feel like there's any more "room" when you already live very frugally. Hopefully there's tons of fun ideas that will help you if another adoption comes along!

  2. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I've been wanting to read this book :)
    One way we live frugally is buying used cars and driving them until they are DEAD. (Among many others of course ;) )

    1. That is a HUGE one Natalie!! The first 10 years of our marriage we were buying new cars every couple years. We thought we were being frugal because we'd buy them a couple of years old. Glad we "saw the light" and got out of that vicious cycle. Our first paid for car was given to us when my grandmother died. It was her 1999 Buick Century. Certainly not my dream car but man, when it's paid for I care a lot less. Since then we've driven our cars until it's just not worth it to repair them and then we have always been able to find low-mileage older cars that we could pay cash for. I LOVE not having a car payment!!!

  3. Use cash on all food purchases- less likely to overspend!
