Our previous blog post was dedicated to stepparent adoptions. Those are one very special type of adoption that can occur, but it isn’t the only type. Many adoptions that occur are those of adults who want to raise a child but are unable to have one of their own or who want to add more children to their present family. We can help people who are venturing into adoptions of any sort so they can protect themselves while they embark upon this beautiful journey.

When you are considering an adoption that isn’t a stepparent adoption, you will have to determine what type of adoption you are comfortable with. Understanding the various types of adoptions that are possible and how each one will affect the future is crucial at this point. We are here to give you the information you need so you can evaluate each type of adoption.

Once you decide on the type of adoption you are comfortable with, you can get the ball rolling. The process of adoption is a complex process that can be difficult to navigate. We are here to walk through the process with you to make sure that you understand what is going on and what you need to do.

As the adoption process gets closer to the finalization day, we will work with you to ensure that you fully understand what happens at finalization and beyond. If you opted for an open adoption, we will be here to answer questions about the contact with the birth parents and other similar matters that might come up as time goes on.
