about how to adopt in

In South Carolina, any adult who lives in the state can adopt (or non-residents if they meet certain conditions). Adopting families may offer financial support to the birth mom for unreimbursed medical, living and legal expenses. Birth parent(s) can consent to adoption any time after birth. Consent becomes irrevocable upon signing unless the birth parent can prove it was involuntary and that withdrawing consent is in the child’s best interest. Fun fact: South Carolina is nicknamed after the lovely Palmetto tree that also graces its state flag.
