Can low income families adopt children?
My family is planning to adopt a baby. My cousin wants to give my mother her baby. We wanted to know is it true if your family is on government assistance that you cannot adopt. I wanted to know if low income families still adopt children. If so what are the requirements. My mom is 42 and has raised all of her children. She has 1 grandson and 2 godchildren. We don’t want to get a child from the foster system, just my cousin’s. She will be giving birth soon and this is very important to us. What can we do to speed up the process?

I don’t think you’ll run into any problems since this is only concerning your family. I’m pretty sure you would only run into trouble if you were trying to adopt a child through an adoption program.

In this case, I would guess that there probably won’t be an issue. If you know the mom and she wants you (or your family) to have the baby then it’s just a matter of filing paperwork, etc. The state would rather a relative get the baby, then to go to the work of putting the baby in the system, etc.
