What to know about termination of parental rights before adoption

Adopting a child can be a wonderful, life-enriching experience for any prospective parent. Whether you want to adopt a baby from across the world or the teenage son or daughter of your partner, becoming a legal parent to a child is an event worth celebrating.

Siblings who wanted to stay together may be closer to adoption

In Pennsylvania alone, there are countless children longing for a family and home of their own. For many of them, adoption may feel like a lifetime away. For one set of siblings in Kansas, however, the wait may finally be coming to an end.

Mother records heartfelt message before son's adoption

An unplanned pregnancy can bring about mixed emotions for a variety of reasons.  Some parents-to-be are concerned about their lack of financial resources and personal support network.  Others are concerned about being able to care for the new child and the children they already have.  Sometimes, these circumstances cause parents to look into placing their infant for adoption. As a consequence, there are many Pennsylvania families that have been united through this choice.

Couples who are unable to have their own biological children may always dream of becoming a family. In these situations, many may consider adoption as a way of providing a child with a loving home. Pennsylvania residents have many options, however, not every opportunity is what it seems.

An adoption is not the only reason to terminate parental rights

Many Pennsylvania families are headed by one if not two biological parents. However, families can take many forms for a variety of different reasons, including adoption. In order for many adoptions to take place, the existing parental rights of a biological parent may first need to be terminated.

Adoption may not be out of the question

There seems to be a common misconception out there that it is too complex and expensive to consider bringing a child in need of a home into one's family. However, while the adoption process can be lengthy and involved, it may not be out of the realm of possibility if one can meet certain requirements. Pennsylvania families who have contemplated this process may be more qualified than they thought.
