Get in contact with an adoption lawyer.

And good luck.

You are amazing for wanting to do this. Your grandchild will certainly be lucky to have you in her life.

I don't know how you'd go about doing this, but I'd agree with the others' advice--contact a lawyer. They'll usually do a free consultation up front, and then you can go from there. Another idea is to check with your daughter's obgyn or someone at the hospital. I'll bet the hospital has someone on staff who can offer some advice.

I wish you, your daughter, and your soon-to-be granddaughter the best of luck.

Laws vary by state however if you contact your local family court, the clerk should be able to tell you the process.

Some jurisdictions require that the adopting parent- even a relative- have background clearances. Still others will require a visit by a social worker who will interview the adopting parent(s) and everyone living in the home, including the child's bio parents. This social worker is appointed by the court.

Your dd will need to fully understand that her parental rights will be terminated and she will not be able to regain those rights unless you, as the adoptive parent give consent.

Adoption is permanent and forever.

This is going to be your best bet for accurate information.

Can you file for guardianship rather than adoption? This way it gives your daughter time to grow up, and you can raise the child; and when she is older she can then take over custody if she and you want? If she decides not to, you can adopt then.  With her being so young and hormonal, I think this will cause serious issues within the family later down the line.
