Customer Question

I am a 62 year old widow. Can I legally adopt a 37 year old man from Nigeria? I have children older than him. I live in Tennessee. I would like to see this young man continue his education and make something of himself. Can you please help me with this issue?

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Is this someone that you met online? Is he currently living in Nigeria or only from there originally? Have you ever met him in person? Is he asking you for money?
