Steps to Adopt -
Research, research, research
Complete a home study by an approved agency or social worker licensed in your state.
Decide what agency or organization your child will come from.
Get LOTS of references for the chosen organization
Decide which, if any, handicaps that you are willing to accept in your child.
Do the paperwork - translations, I-600A, , medical, psychological, etc.
Do more paperwork - immigration stuff, social security, court papers, etc.
Pick up your child and live life happily ever after.
