I am just starting out in the adoption process. I have a teenage cousin who's pregnant and due in January. She has so far made the decision to put her baby up for adoption. She and her father wanted the baby to hopefully go to a family member, and another important factor, a person who attends church regularly. My husband and I have been married for 2 years, and desperately want children. We talked, and decided that we would put our foot in the door and mention our desire to adopt the child if we were able to. My cousin and Uncle called me and said they'd be happy for us to adopt the baby. We are all in agreement that this is what we want, but now it's time to get a lawyer and get the ball rolling. I don't know what to expect, and I hope that we are eligible. Is there anyone else that has been in a similar situation like this, that could give me some advice or insight into our present situation. Thank you very much.
