about how to adopt in

In Missouri, any adult or married couple filing jointly may adopt. Adopting families can cover the birth mom’s unreimbursed medical, counseling, legal and living expenses. The birth mother can consent to adoption 48 hours after the birth. Consent becomes irrevocable once approved by the court, which must be done within 3 days (or a hearing must be set). Fun fact: Missouri is known for ragtime, St. Louis blues and Kansas City-style barbeque.
