When families are joined together by adoption, there is generally a need for emotional and financial support. The children available for adoption through the Special Needs Adoption Program (SNAP) are eligible for many different services and programs. The families who adopt these children often receive medical help, financial assistance, and reimbursement for legal fees for the finalization of the adoption. In Kentucky, children placed in foster care by the state also receive free tuition to Kentucky colleges or vocational schools.

Adoption support groups are available across Kentucky. These support groups help families as they work through issues related to adoption and blending of a family.
