Stepparent Adoption

Stepparent adoptions are used to unite new families together. The relationship with a birth parent is terminated, and the stepparent (husband or wife) becomes the new legal parent of the child. There are many reasons families use stepparent adoptions. A teenager that has only known the stepparent as a parent may want to be adopted. A birth parent may want to give a child up to the new family for support or other reasons.
