Medical Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act mandates that an employer must grant an eligible employee up to a total of 12 work-weeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period in regard to a child that is adopted or born to a person or couple.

Special Needs Children

Financial Help with the adoption of Special Needs Children is available from the federal government and from state authorities.  Children with special needs may qualify for child adoption assistance to help cover the expenses related to their need for ongoing therapy or treatment.  It is critical to know that for both federally funded and state-funded subsidies you must apply and receive approval before the adoption is finalized, so research this option early in the adoption process.
