What if the birth mother is under the age of 18?

A birth mother under the age of 18 and over the age of 14 has the sole power to consent to the adoption of her child. It is not necessary to contact her parents or other family members. A birth mother 14 years or younger must have a parent, legal guardian, or court-appointed guardian ad litem to assist and advise the birth mother as to the adoption plan.
