So I was bored and saw and ad and I decided to try and look at pictures of Russian children available for adoption. Well I couldn't get to the pictures but I found a chart they had for expenses of adopting a child from different countries. The cheapest place was the Dominican Republic at $15,000. Russia was $27,500. No wonder there are so many kids without homes!! Holy cow. I think a couple could do a few rounds of in-vetro and pay for the medical bills of having a kid and still come out ahead of adopting!!
