how does adoption work, exactly, if a women is not directly giving her child to a specified other person(s)? i'm under the impression that there is no such thing as orphanages anymore, so.. what exactly would happen to the child of a mother that birthed it but no longer wanted it? whom would she give it to? where would the child live? and so on. i mean.. is it even legal for her to "abandon" her child at that point or did she have to make that decision before the child's birth? i know adoption agencies are involved somehow.. bu.. eh. i just realized i had no idea about that sort of thing when someone asked me this question the other day. :x
