I think that is about it. You get a good lawyer who does adoptions often and he or she should be able to help you with the other points of the process.


Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

Yep, that's about it. If you're in the MD, VA, DC area, I can recommend a great lawyer.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

We are in NC. I was praying about the lawyer and had know idea where to start so I just said God it's up to you, I'm just going to put 'adoption attorney' in yahoo and whatever name comes up I'll call... I was so funny! On the first page of search results only one office name came up! All the rest were sites for listings like nextag and yellowpages I'm so glad he is facilitating all of this :0)
