More Companies Smell the Coffee

This article doesn't just highlight the fact that more companies are offering adoption benefits to employees, it covers a host of other issues and you don't even have to read between the lines!

Yes, adoption is tough on the wallet and insurance doesn't typically cover any of it.

Yes, adoption is an emotional roller coaster even though pregnancy hormones aren't directly involved.

Yes, family leave is just as important for any family with a new baby at home regardless of how old that baby might be when he or she arrives.

Bravo to all of the companies already offering benefits!

If your company isn't - yet - perhaps you can print out the article and strategically drop it off on the desks of a few key executives. If that doesn't work, perhaps you can do it every week until they suddenly think it was their idea in the first place to offer benefits. :-)

it sounds good on paper. My husband's company offers adoption credit, but we had to jump through hoops to get it. Our statements from our agency was not good enough. we ended up having to submit very detailed individual receipts...we still don't know if we will get the money yet...
