Hi Everyone,
I'm new on here but I'm looking for some advice. My partner and I are in our 20's and we are both lesbians. Her brother recently got his girlfriend pregnant and they have decided that they do not wish to have the baby. Since they know that we have been trying, they have asked us to adopt their child when the baby is born. Me and my partner aren't quite sure what to do.
I wondered whether anyone has been through the adoption process or have ever encountered a situation when they have been asked to adopt a child, does anyone know the legal implications of this?

Thanks very much in advance, its much appreciated.
