    To pay a coyote to get your kid to the U.S. than for a formal adoption? I'm not being snarky, I just don't know how much a formal, foreign adoption costs.

    I do know people who have come via coyotes through Mexico. One woman I met in Guatemala told me it cost her friend $5000 USD to go from Guatemala City, through to the U.S. side of the border. My ex girlfriend came illegally with her parents from Sonora, Mexico. I believe it cost around $2000 a person. This was back in the 80's.
