To be eligible to adopt, the prospective adoptive parents must be at least twenty-five (25) years of age and at least twenty-one (21) years older than the child at the time of application. An application for adoption may be made jointly by a husband and wife. An application may also be made by a single person but only if that person is female. A male who is single may only adopt their own biological child or also in situations where the court determines is a special circumstance.
