Adoption bug help?
So I have Breezehome all decked out with the kid's room in order to adopt, and while I was able to successfully adopt Lucia, she's currently glitched and will only continue to say "I can't wait" whenever I try to talk to her.

On top of that, when trying to adopt Sophie (and any other child that I've tried), I can offer to adopt her, and then...nothing. After she asks if I really have somewhere for her to live, the dialog box disappears again, she says thanks for talking to her, and walks away. This happens everytime I ask, I can't continue the dialog to adopt her.

If anyone has any way that I can fix this short of starting a brand new game I'd appreciate it so much.

Does the child's bed have a chest with it? If not, adoption won't occur. See here:

I'm not sure, but you may also have to wait awhile before they show up. Try sleeping in an inn or "waiting" a day outside of the zone that they are in and see what happens.

As it's the child bed in Breezehome, then yeah, they both have chests. And waiting doesn't help, because I wasn't able to officially adopt her. I was never given the option to send her to Breezehome.

Check the buglist, here:

Do any of those conditions apply? Have you installed the "Unofficial Hearthfire Patch?" (I really recommend all the "Unofficial" patches by the Unofficial Team. You can get them at nexusmods.

Nah, it's not listed there. And while I do have the mod, it doesn't seem to fix either issue. Thank you, though. :(

Sorry about that.

Just run through the console commands and see if you can force her to join the adopted/whatever faction. Or, reset her to her original state, then run through the adoption process again.

Commands here:

There should be a combination available that will put her back on the right adoption track.

Added note to my reply, above: Backup your save! If you reset whoever you're trying to adopt, that may throw monkey-wrenches into other things. Console commands are extremely powerful and messing with NPCs, especially those who are critical or that you have a current quest with, can be potentially destructive. Use at your own risk.

Hmm, sounds like a glitch with the adoption quest.

Try disabling the Hearthifre DLC in the mod list and running the game without it for a while, then re-enabling it which should reset HF. Obviously not a good idea if you've already built a HF house or two.
