We understand your concerns

I went through your description. You should have mentioned your country of residence or citizenship. Every country has its own adoption laws nd regulations and they differes significantly country to country.

There are certain common guidelines to follow:
1. Allow only if adoption is so much a necessity.
2. Every mother wants to retain her child, this mother may not agree to this now, but later she might ask for the child and the court will not question her.
3. Legally you will not be allowed to keep a child if te legitimate mother asks it for, even if there is an agreement on this matter (differs with countries)
4. Find out the health of mother for any STDs etc.

There are so many other problems associated with adopting a child whose mother and father is still alive. Better to adopt an orphan child. Be careful.

Hope this clears your doubts. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
