Ok, so DH and I started looking into adoption about 2 months ago when we heard through a friend that a friend of hers was just going to give up her baby. She doesn't want to go through an adoption agency or anything and basically just wants to sign over her rights. Is this possible? Would we have to go through an agency anyway for home visits and stuff like that? We have an appointment to meet with our lawyer friend in a few days to see what he says, but I am interested in what you ladies could tell me so I can get a feel for what to ask him or what he might tell me. I am super nervous this isn't going to work out like I want it to. TIA!
