I very seriously doubt it. But don't you think this is a decision your husband should be closely involved with? Kind of seems mandatory to me.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

Your husband and you are sharing a life together. Why would you not give him a vote in such an important consideration. For the adoptee to be happy and secure, both you and husband would have to work at it as a happy couple.Cool

What is truth -

I work in adoption and the answer is no. We take adoption preparation very seriously and a series of face to face meeting are held with both the prospective mother and father in the efforts to approve them to adopt via an adoption home study. The husband would have to be a part of these proceedings.

 

Single parents can adopt. Once divorced, the woman can proceed to adopt. But if she adopted while married, the husband would be legally responsible for the child also in the eyes of the court. So he would always have a say. Hope that helps!
