To Adopt Your Stepchild, Grandchild Or Any Child

The path to adoption is unique for every family. You may have set out to adopt to build a family — or you may have found yourself in a parenting role with a grandchild or stepchild.

Adoption makes sense so you can take care of your child as you want and need to, without complications such as getting permission from absentee parents to take your child on a trip or to the doctor, or enroll him or her in school. Adoption will solidify your identity as a family and provide your foster child, stepchild or grandchild with the security he or she badly needs.
