Currently, our infant niece is living with us. She was placed with us in December by CPS. The mother and father are really thinking of going ahead and signing away their parental rights. If this happens, we have decided that we would love to adopt her. How much is the average cost of an adoption like this? It seems like it wouldn't be too costly based upon them wanting us to have her. Is there a way for us to do this pro se? Do you have to have a lot of money in order for a judge to think you're okay to adopt? We definitely don't have too much money to work with, but she's been with us since she was released from the hospital anyway. Please help!
