About the Adoption Process

Various types of adoptions can occur, from stepparent adoptions to private, interstate, and international adoptions. Private adoptions include those called kinship adoption, where the child and parent are related, stepparent adoption, same-sex partner adoption (called second parent adoption), adoptions that are created through friends, family, or acquaintances which do not go through a formal adoption agency, private agency adoptions, and interstate adoptions where the birth parent resides in Pennsylvania and where the birth parent resides in another state.

The process will involve many steps, including home studies and required clearances for household members above the age of 18. Once all steps are completed, the adoption is finalized and you will receive a new birth certificate which will reflect your name(s) as the child's parents. Other types of adoption include adopting a child whom you have taken in through foster care as well as adopting a child from a foreign country. All of these types of adoption can be complicated, which is why it is important to be represented by an attorney who can help you navigate the process efficiently.
