My nephew is having a child with his 15 year old girl friend. They have decided to adopt the child to someone in the family. It seems that we may very likely be adopting my great niece/nephew here in the next little bit (she's seven months along). I realize that this is going to be a huge challenge for a million reasons but my question is... has anyone been through this? Do I need an attorney (I imagine we do to make sure the documents are iron clad incase my nephew decides he wants custody 10 years down the road or something) but what kind of lawyer? Is it insanely expensive? *sigh* I'm so nervous, and worried, and (as bad as it may sound) EXCITED. Thoughts? Comments? Advice?Answer Question
