Adoption laws are state specific and I don't believe any attorneys from Wisconsin follow these boards at this time. So the best way for you to get accurate answers, is to contact an adoption attorney in Wisconsin on Monday and get the process started. In the three states I have practiced in, a child does not have to be in the "system" to be adopted.

Not really sure what we're supposed to make of your post.  Despite putting four question marks at the end of your post, you didn't actually ask any questions.  All that being said, adoption is not a good do-it-yourself project.  Hire a local attorney to help you.

I assume you are talking about a program which reimburses certain costs associated with adopting children in the foster care system who have special needs. This child is not in the foster care system. I can't tell what exactly you are trying to do here. Are you trying to get this child placed in foster care? Or just adopt him and aren't willing to pay the legal fees associated with very nearly every adoption?
