Our mother died over two years ago, and my sister collects her benefits, which cover most of the bills. Prospective parents are usually in the 25 to 50 year old range, but age requirements can be even more flexible depending on the age of the child.

The court shall not enter a proposed order unless the terms of such order have been approved in writing by the prospective adoptive parents, any birth parent whose parental rights have not previously been terminated, and, if the child or siblings of the child are in the custody of the department or a licensed child-placing agency, a representative of the department or child-placing agency.
