I just went through the procedure of adopting my biological son, who I gave up for adoption at age 5. I live in Pennsylvania and my son in N.Y. I started with asking a lawyer friend how to proceed. He had me call the bar association. They referred me to a local lawyer, who wanted $1,500 and would not accept my offer of $500, saying she couldn't possibly do it for that. I bought the adoption forms from this site, including the example forms - cost was around $200. It cost $85 in our county to file the fee for court, and a couple months for the date to come around. I, my son, and his mom went to court, answered their simple questions, and it was done for a total cost of under $300.
