I'm completely new to the site, but I believe this is where I fit in most.

My husband and I have tried for a family for a very long time. A friend of ours has said for a long time, that she'd have a baby for us. She is now pregnant (found out the 7th of Feb!) and she is giving the baby to us. Our greatest gift and dream, she is making come true. We've known her for a long time and she has been there through our pain and losses we've went through. She said she feels like she is doing something she is meant to be doing.

We are really excited about it and we have faith that this is our chance. Right now, I am not sure what the next step is? I know that most likely, we'll need to contact a lawyer. But since this is a more personal/friend adoption, I don't really know where to go from here. I don't know what is needed. Basically, she has picked us to be the adoptive parents to the baby. So what's next? Does anyone have any information on an adoption like this?

I don't have advice since I'm not familiar with this kind of adoption, just wanted to say hi, welcome, and I'm so happy for you! What a wonderful thing for your friend to do.

Get an lawyer and he or she will help you through the process.
