What is Adoption?
Adoptions
Adoption is meant to establish a legally recognized lifelong relationship between a parent and a child who are not related biologically.
What are the different types of Adoptions?

There are a number of different types of adoptions including international adoption, registering a foreign adoption, step-child adoption, closed adoption, and arranging other types. In each case, appropriate documents and/or pleadings need to be filed with the court to insure proper and permanent placement of the child.
Whose consent is needed for adoption to occur?
Generally, the birth parents must consent to an adoption in order for it to be legal. At times a legal guardian or an appropriate Government Agency may need to give consent.
What is an Open Adoption?
An Open Adoption means the birth parents will be the ones who participate in the choice of the adopting parents for the child. This is very different from a traditional adoption where someone else determines who would raise the child. In an Open Adoption the adopting parents are identified to the birth parents.
