If you’re starting the adoption process right now or just exploring the possibility, Elements will be here to offer you financial support for the expected and unexpected.

No one’s adoption story is the same, and no one’s costs are exactly the same. All costs and situations vary by individual adoption. No matter which type of adoption you choose and no matter what twists and turns your path takes, Elements Financial will be here to help you plan for the unexpected. The surprises that will come with adoption are what make your journey exciting. So don’t fear the unexpected. Instead, look to the end result: the new addition to your family!

You can tailor your loan to what you think you’ll need, with amounts ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. The loan has an extended draw period of 24 months, and we allow you to take multiple draws as you need the funds. Once the 24-month draw period has ended, you can take up to eight years to pay off the loan with fixed monthly payments.

My wife and I were so excited when we found out about the adoption loan program at Elements. Without this program, we would've never been able to bring our new child, Brody, into our family!
