What do I need to do for a private adoption?
A friend is having a baby, and she is unable to care for this baby. We've decided that I'll adopt the baby and the mother is in agreement. What do we need to do and have in place for this adoption to happen? I'm a resident of AR and she's currently living in TX. She wants to sign her rights over at the birth, but we have no idea how to legally do this. The father was a one-night stand and I don't know anything about him.
