My husband and I are looking to adopt a baby. I had to have a hysterectomy due to cancerous cells and we were not ready to end having children. Is it possible to adopt a child from a mother who does not want the baby without going through the agencies? I know obviously there needs to be legal paperwork involved. We would go as far as supporting the mother, let her stay with us until she gives birth and then we adopt the baby.Answer Question

I believe you can through a private attorney.

You can from a private attorney, however, just be prepared for disappointment. One of my mom's friends did this. They provided the girl her own apartment, health care cost, food, etc. Then when she gave birth she decided to keep the baby. A month later she gave the baby up for adoption to another couple.
