    The "procedure" is addressed in the following WA statutes:

    Chapter 26.33 RCW: ADOPTION

    You can also go on your local family court's website and see if they have forms and instructions.

    You should know, however, that you'll likely need the consent of both parents.

    The child is with you in the PI, right?

    Your IP indicates you posted your missive from the PI.

    I suggest you speak with a PI lawyer, ASAP, especially if you've been housing an American citizen.
