Adoption Registry (6-18 months)

Last Updated: September 16, 2016
Wondering what gear you’ll need and want for your newly adopted baby? Here are some lovingly chosen suggestions! Adoption Registry (6-18 months)

We’ve done our best to think of every single thing a new adoptive parent might need. However, please remember to adjust your registry for the age of child you are going to receive. This particular registry is for a 6-18 month old baby; if you’re adopting a newborn or an older child, make sure you adjust clothing and diaper sizes accordingly, and pick travel options that are appropriate. Good luck on your adoption odyssey!

Adoption Fund- Contribute towards adoption costs and travel

The average cost of adopting a child is between $30,000 and $40,000 (which doesn’t even include the cost of their gear). In addition, there’s the cost of travel: airfare, hotel, transportation, food, plus attorney and government fees if applicable. So don’t be shy: give your friends and family a chance to chip in. If you use BabyList, you can even give friends and family a secure way to donate online, right on your registry page!
