  • Contact an adoption lawyer to get started. It has to be a legal adoption or you could end up loosing the shile later on.

  • Most lawyers will give a complimentary first time consultation. Find one who specializes in adoption and get some advice. Make sure it is done legally. GL

  • You could probably set things up as a surrogate situation - which is a simple contract. Less hassle and totally binding.

  • If social services does take the child, you can ask to have him or her placed with you as a foster situation. You would have to get certified. Then you could adopt. If your brother and his gf both want to place the baby with you and make that decision before CPS gets involved, you may be able to just have a lawyer guide you through the process. They will need their own lawyer, and both lawyers should specialize in adoption so it is done correctly. You will also need to have a homestudy done.

  • Marie, I commend you for wanting to "save" your neice/nephew, however, you mention nothing about the young lady who this baby belongs to as well...a very important equation in this. Does SHE wish to surrender her baby, what are the circumstances, how long have you and 'your partner" been together, employment history , own or rent your home, etc...????? You have left too much out to even give an informed opinion:( I wish this Mommy luck, and hopefully your brother can get his act together, before HIS baby is born, and attempt to provide for his child, Good Luck,CJ

  • Forgot to mention...Iamgr8teful has given you wise advice1 Also have you considered a Legal Guardianship as oppossed to Adoption? These are all things to consider, however, again I am happy to hear that you wish for your neice nephew to stay with its very own GOD given family, CJ
