about how to adopt in

In Kentucky, any adult who has lived in the state at least one year may adopt, and married couples must file jointly. Adopting families may provide financial support to the birth mom for unreimbursed medical, counseling, legal and living expenses. A birth mom can consent to adoption 72 hours after birth. Consent becomes final 20 days after signing or state/interstate approval, whichever is later. Fun fact: Kentucky is home to Mammoth Cave National Park - the longest cave system on earth.
