Unregistered No, because they go by age or developmental age. He will most likely stay infant-toddler developmentally. Plus he takes up physical space in my home that otherwise, I could have for a daycare crib. So looks like I am forced to take the hit, which I figured I would.

daisymay Is there an age where he/she will no longer count in your ratios? You can verify that with licensing.

Unregistered Thanks guys. I can call nursing staff in which is covered by insurance if I went to work, so that wouldn't cost anything. I just would prefer not too. So it does actually cost me money. Thanks for the clarification though, figured it was a reach but worth asking.

Congratulations on the adoption.

Since you are able to be home with him vs putting him in child care so you can work, I'd look at it like a savings of $900 per month forever.

I appreciate it that you are taking on this responsibility. Unfortunately, you cannot deduct any business expenses associated with an adopted child (or biological child).
