Adoption Laws

Texas Adoption Laws


Adoption law in Texas can be confusing. Only licensed agencies are allowed to help a birth family with maternity related living expenses. These living expenses include rent, utilities, food, personal hygiene items, household supplies, maternity clothing, and telephone service, transportation to services, medical care, legal counsel and adoption counseling. These expenses are authorized by the state to make sure that you and your baby are healthy when it is born. It is important to get good pre-natal care, take your pre-natal vitamins if prescribed, to eat nutritious food including milk, cheese and other proteins.
