How easy is it to adopt a biracial child/baby?

I’m Hispanic and my husband is black. We are unable to have bio kids and we want to adopt either a baby or child. We live in Texas. How hard would it be for us to adopt a half Hispanic/black child or baby here? Would foster care be the way to go or would

Answers:

Quite easy, actually, especially if you go through foster care. Adoption via foster care (which would mean a child, not a baby) is free. Adoption via an agency (which would mean a baby) can be very expensive. Given the fact that you're looking for a mixed race child, and you're open to a child older than a baby, I would recommend adopting via foster care.

Texas has a rather large number of children, particularly of Hispanic, Black and Mixed Race, in foster care, available for adoption. I'll include links to some websites you should look at to get started.

You're doing a wonderful thing by adopting a child, and I wish you the best of luck! x

It is very challenging to adopt a baby of any race, even one with a severe disability. But if you persist, you will probably succeed eventually.
Older children are more available; you can check into that.
Good luck.

While anything is possible, narrowing the criteria makes the wait for an infant even longer and possibly not something that would happen at all. Only1% of newborns are placed for adoption. Narrowing that number to a specific type of child makes that percentage even smaller. For every newborn placed for adoption, there are at least 40 couples wanting to adopt, so there is a lot of competition. Infant adoption is also very expensive. Expect to spend at least $20,000, and probably more.

Adoption from foster care is free or very low cost. There are children living in foster care who are legally free for adoption. You might be the perfect couple to adopt a waiting child, or a sibling group.

Adopting from foster care would be MUCH more affordable. Adopting an infant from an agency can run you well over $20K per child, whereas foster care adoptions are taxpayer-funded. .

Not all children in foster care are available for adoption. Most of them can expect to be reunited with their original extended family at some point. Of those who are legally free to be adopted, not many will be infants. Still, these are the children who are most in need of a loving permanent home. If you're willing to accept a preschooler or slightly older child, foster care adoption might be an excellent option for you.

An adoption agency is always "the best" way to go.
The more restrictions you place on the adoption - race, ethnicity, religion, gender, medical issues = the harder it is to receive an adoptive child. Finding a hispanic/black child is going to be harder than simply taking the next child on the list... if you are dead-set on this combination, you will be skipped over until this type of child is available.
