Actually, I think they may be referring to the system here in the US, of fostering, sometimes with the option of adopting. In those cases, you can get paid by the state, or, upon adoption, elect not to. I work with a fellow that fostered, then adopted sisters. It was for love, not money, and does not get paid for them.
