Are you married to the father of 3 children? Do you secretly wish that they would call you “Mother” one day?
You’re not alone – stepparent adoptions have become extremely common in the United States. If the mother of these children has stepped out of their lives for one reason or another, the process to become a real parent can be challenging – the biological mother must first terminate her parental rights by signing a voluntary agreement.
Then…. The court must agree that the termination of the biological mother’s rights and granting the stepparent’s request for adoption are in the best interest of the children before the adoption can move forward.
