Adoption Loan Fund

Adopting a child can be expensive. From attorney’s fees to agency costs, the expenses can reach $60,000. For hopeful families, this financial reality may prove to be an unsurmountable obstacle. That is where HFLA can help. Thanks to a generous donation by Reggie and Jeff Goldstein, HFLA of South Florida has expanded its Making Miracle Babies Fertility Fund to include interest-free loans for adoption. The Goldstein Family Adoption Fund will provide $24,000 to cover the birth mother’s medical and living expenses, adoption and attorney fees, social worker fees, court costs and more. For the Goldsteins, it is a deeply personal mission. Their son and daughter were adopted so they understand how complicated and costly the process can be.

Repayments will be 48 months based on a maximum loan amount of $24,000, without interest, beginning 30 days after the loan is made and at the sole discretion of HFLA.
