Is there any legal requirement in the adoption of a child if he has attained 12 years of age?

My third son will attain 12 years of age after 4 months. My husband and I decided to give him in adoption to my sister since she doesn’t have a child. We live in West Virginia. My son may not be ready to go with them as he doesn’t like to be detached from his siblings. Somebody advised me that there will be legal obligations if he passed 12. Is it correct?
