- • limitations
(1) The Department of Human Services may make payments to adoptive parents on behalf of a child placed for adoption by the department or by an approved child-caring agency when the department determines:
(a) The child has special needs because of a handicap to adoptive placement by reason of the child’s physical or mental condition, race, age, or membership in a sibling group; or
(b) The adoptive family is capable of providing the permanent family relationships needed by the child in all respects other than financial, and the needs of the child are beyond the economic ability and resources of the family.
(2) Payments in subsidization of adoption may include but are not limited to the maintenance costs, medical and surgical expenses, and other costs incidental to the care, training and education of the child. Such payments may not exceed the cost of providing comparable assistance in foster care and shall not be made after the adoptive child becomes 18 years of age. [1971 c.129 §§1,2]
