How do I input a tax adoption credit for a failed adoption? Turbo tax asks for SS number and name and obviously, with a failure, I don't have that.

I know that I am able to take the deduction as it has been one year, just can't figure out how to actually do it in the program itself.  Just need to know how to navigate turbotax for this specific item.
