A: I'm afraid I don't understand your question. Is your child born, and another Virginia couple is adopting your child? Are you in the middle of adoption proceedings either here in Pennsylvania, or in Virginia?

I suggest you contact whoever is brokering the adoption, and pose your question there. Alternately, if the child is born and still lives with you (and you otherwise qualify), you could file for food stamps or cash assistance for both you and your child now in Pennsylvania. Best of luck to you.
