I have a friend. Her sister is 16yrs old and I am planning on raising her baby. Can anyone tell me the steps that I would have to go through to make this work. The father is an older guy who needs to be locked up but decided to hurry and move out of state so they won't find him. She has no job, her family will not help her. At this point I am raising her as well. Do she just give up her rights as mother. I do not have any kids of my own so this is a blessing to me. She is due in 10weeks and want to get the ball rolling. Please help me.
