Adoption is a legal process that involves adopting another person’s biological child into your family. Step-parent adoptions fall into this category. After a person legally adopts a child, he or she is legally responsible for that child’s wellbeing, for providing food and shelter, and for providing for the medical and educational needs of the child. In a standard adoption, the rights of the birth parent are terminated when the rights of the adoptive parents are recognized.
Becoming the legal parent of a child carries with it both rights and obligations. You will have the right to custody as well as the responsibility to care for the child and make decisions about his or her education, health and more.
