Can’t adopt children at all even after completing Innocence Lost

I'm currently in the process of fixing up my load order and my modlist for my new playthrough and testing by constantly making a new save and I just found out that even after completing the quest and talking to Constance, I'm unable to adopt any of the kids. When I talk to them the option "I can adopt you if I want" doesn't appear and when I talk to the street kids like Lucia or Sofie, I can't even get them to share their backstory and they just say dialogue such as "Yes?" or "Hmm?" after giving them 1 septim.

So I tried unchecking all my mods except for Skyrim Unbound Reborn and Simple Children (+ its other requirements) and I was able to adopt children as usual so I tried checking another mod that I thought could be responsible for breaking the opportunity to adopt children which was AI overhaul and it turns out I wasn't able to adopt children after, despite using a patch that makes AI overhaul and Simple Children compatible. Multiple Adoptions mod didn't cause any problems so it was ruled out. I thought I found the source of my problem so I decided to check all my mods and start a new save again but when I tried to adopt a kid after finishing Innocence Lost, I couldn't adopt kids again???

I thought Save the Darkbrotherhood & Your Choices Matter – Dark Brotherhood could be the cause because they make changes to the Dark Brotherhood questline but those mods didn't seem to cause a problem with adopting so I ruled them out also. Some other things (yes, it's random) I noticed that M'aiq doesn't say his random lines and he just says he's tired and doesn't want to be bothered so I wonder if one of my mods potentially "broke" him. Another thing is that back when I testing a new save and I only had like around 90 mods then, I actually could adopt children even before completing Innocence Lost (I had Immersive Citizens – AI Overhaul but switched to AI overhaul due to the controversy I heard about the former).

Basically, I need help in detecting which mod could break my game into not allowing me to adopt children at all. Sorry if it's still messy, as I have said I'm still in the processing of picking mods and sorting my load order.
