  1. Yes, you can legally adopt. I would suggest getting an attorney asap. Note that you can not do anything more for her than pay hospital bills associated with the pregnancy and birth... "buying" children is illegal.

    Every legal matter is fact specific, and there are often nuances in every case. This is intended for comment only, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
