2. Money paid directly to the child includes clothing, medical/dental, therapy, tutoring, etc. It also includes fees to psychiatrists and drugs.

4. payments made to parents during adoption probation and subsidy, including financial support for parental relief, medical and/or dental, therapy, counselling, etc.
