Adoptions in Georgia will be easier soon.  The Senate passed a bill today that would make it easier to adopt children in and out of state.   The legislation shortens the time allowed for a birth mother to change her mind about giving up her child. It will also allow adoptive parents to reimburse birth mothers’ living expenses and simplify out of state adoptions.
