Please fill out the following optional information before submitting your rating:

You and your friend can jointly contact an adoption agency or adoption attorney and indicate that you both want this placement (known as an “identified” or “designated” adoption).

You will still need to have a homestudy and you and your friend will need to meet all other requirements for counseling, pre-adoption education, and any others required by the adoption professional and state law.

My friend and I have jointly raised her 12-year-old children. She agrees that I can adopt the children, but does not want to give up her own parental rights. Can i adopt, so we will both be legal parents, even though not married? #1

Hello. I had my daughter two years ago. And her dad has never wanted to see her etc. however my best friend has practically helped my bring my daughter up. She's been the father figure that's daughter has never had. How would my best friend go about adopting my daughter?! I know it's something she has always wanted to do. She sees my daughter as her own and treats her as her own. Does anyone have any advice? #2
