There are several options in Texas to get an adoption. You need to be at least 21 years of age, financially stable, and must complete a home study. Just like in every area of Texas Family Law the primary concern is what is in the best interest of the children. The paramount concern of the Texas legislature and the court system is to make sure that our children are safe.
The home study will be an inspection of your ability to properly raise the child. There will be an inquiry as to whether it is financially feasible for you to adopt and raise the child and whether or not you will be able to raise the child in a safe environment.
