Adoption

An Adoption is the statutory process of reassigning parental rights from the natural parents and assigning those rights to another individual or couple. A couple may decide to adopt an unrelated child; an individual may decide to adopt the child of his or her spouse; grandparents or other relatives may seek adoption – all of these situations provide more stability and greater legal responsibilities than guardianship does.

Adoption gives legal advantage, such as rights of inheritance, but it also gives greater emotional stability to the newly-created family unit.
