In Alabama, any resident 18 or older may adopt. Adopting families can cover the birth mother’s unreimbursed medical, legal, and living expenses, and, potentially, her lost wages. Birth parent(s) can relinquish parental rights within 5 days of birth if the adoption decree is signed prior to birth, or 5 days after signing, if signed after birth. Consent can be revoked for an additional 9 days in based on cause shown in a filed petition.
