We want to remind you that these fees are approximate. While Families Thru International Adoption's Agency Fee will not change during your adoption proceedings, all other fees and costs are subject to change. Based on our experience, we do not expect any substantial change. The travel costs to and from Russia, and inside Russia, vary every trip depending on when and where in Russia you will adopt, the availability of hotels, etc. It is not expected that any of the other fees or expenses will be waived or reduced.
