People consider adoption for a lot of reasons. Perhaps they are married but unable to conceive or carry to term healthy children due to a medical or genetic condition. Perhaps a loved one is no longer able to provide for one's children, due to illness or incarceration. Perhaps they are in a committed relationship and would like to adopt the child of their partner. Whatever the reason for considering adoption, whether your family is only interested in adopting certain children or is hoping to add a child or two to the family, working with an experienced family law attorney can expedite the process and help minimize the stress adoption can cause your family.
