9. Adoption assistance is capped at $5000/year
or the amount that would otherwise have been paid to care for the same child in foster care.

Medicaid - if family insurance doesn't cover the child.

You're right - for any child with a significant disability, it would not even come close to covering the costs associated with providing care.
