Adoption-friendly employers

The numbers talk: Roughly 64 percent of Americans have had a personal experience with adoption. I am grateful to learn even some small businesses are offering adoption benefits to their workers.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has named the Top 100 Adoption-friendly employers. It ranked employers on their adoption benefits, such as the amount of financial reimbursement and paid leave available to employees who adopt. These businesses with less than 100 employees offer financial reimbursement ranging from $500 to $20,960 and paid leave ranging from one to 16 weeks . Check this out: the average is $4,700 in financial reimbursement and five weeks of paid leave. That's impressive for small businesses !
