  • first, you have to go to an adoption agency & fill out miles of paper work to see if you eligible to adopt. They won't give babies to just anyone.

  • The first thing to do is research the different adoption processes...then, you narrow it down to which process is right for you. Once you accomplish that, you can speak with an agency OR the county/state if you choose foster to adopt. There really is too much information about adoption and its processes/ pros/ cons to put down for you. If you have specific questions that would help...your query is too broad.

  • I agree with mcginnisc ^

    Your very first step is decide which type of adoption you want to do. They all have a different process.
