  • You need to get in touch with a lawyer. If you already have a child to adopt, contact a lawyer and they will do the paperwork. Also, you may have to pay for your friend's medical expenses. Also, are you sure you want to adopt the child of a friend? I know you want a baby but something like this could ruin a friendship...though, babies are more important!

  • My sister had a friend whose cousin did that. The cousin went into labor and kust put her cousins husband down for father(my sisters friend)and my sister's friend adopted her as the mother because her husband was listed as father-it worked and it was fairly cheap that way...GL
