You should call your county, they can tell you where to go. You can probably even talk to your OBGYN/Midwife. The clinic should have lots of information for you and your sister.

Many times your OBGYN knows of a couple that have tried to have a child but can't.  There are also attorneys who have lists of families and you get to know their profiles and pick the couple you would like to adopt your child.  They get very involved and are supportive throughout the pregnancy in anything your sister would need at no expense to her.  There are open-adoptions and closed adoptions.  Your sister can make the open adoption to see the child on occassion, pictures, updates etc... or closed and not.  Sounds like she is going to make a couple very happy.  I am so proud of her in whatever she decides.  I think this is one of the hardest decisions one can make.  She will need lots of support.  Goodluck to all!

Glad you are supporting her in her decision. No matter what she chooses to do she needs you by her side. I chose adoption right away and didn't have anyone by my side and it makes it extremely difficult. What a wonderful sister you must be to seek answers.

Your sister could also google "adoption attorneys" or "adoption agencies" . A ton of listings will pop up with resources in her area. I'm trying to adopt right now and am having a great experience with a local attorney. Best of luck to you both!

There most likely is a childrens home or a like organization that helps you with the adoption process. There are legal rights the tupe of adoption you want and all sorts of medical history ect that the mom will need to write down for the child to have whenever they are of age. Some moms are even allowed to write a letter and give a picture to the baby and the adoptive parents can have the option of when to give it ti the child
