Why Choose Adoption Option, Inc.?
The people at AOI are fully committed to helping children find a permanent loving and nurturing family. We firmly believe “a child reached is a child saved.”
A stepparent adoption usually occurs when one or more of the interested parties believes it is in the best interest of the adoptee. This type of adoption is sometimes initiated because one relationship has dissolved (the relationship between the child and its non-custodial parent) and another has emerged (the relationship between the child being adopted and their stepparent).
As a result, the stepparent adoption simply provides legal recognition and confirmation of the emotional relationship that has already formed. This adoption can be initiated without a home study. However, a home study must be completed before the adoption can be granted.
