Default costs of adoption & convincing husband

I have two questions. I have very, very often thought of adopting. I would love a big family and being 42 (husband 50), that isn't going to happen naturally. We have an 18 month old son and my husband has a 19 year old away at college. We are trying (w/ difficulty) for #2. Regardless of that outcome, I would really love to adopt.

Question 1: Could you give me a sense for what it costs? I have no idea and no idea where to find out! I would be interested in adopting an older child who is really in need of a permanent home.

Question 2: My husband seems basically uninterested in adopting. I've never pushed a big conversation about it, but on the surface he doesn't seem interested, though he is very interested in conceiving #2. Any tips on bringing up the topic with him seriously??
