Termination of Parental Rights

   Adoption creates a legally binding parent/child relationship with all the rights and obligations of a traditional natural parent relationship.  At the same time,
the adoption process removes the rights and obligations of any previously
existing parent/child relationship and replaces it with the new adoptive
relationship between the adopted child and the adoptive parent(s).  Adoption
requires a court order which legally recognizes and establishes the new
adoptive parent/child relationship.  The adoptive parent(s) must appear before
the court and sign a written statement agreeing to act in all regards as the
parent of the adoptive child and accepting all the responsibilities that go with
that adoptive relationship.

   The adoption process allows the birth mother to find a loving and accepting
home for her child.  Meanwhile, the adoptive family is able to embrace and raise
the child they have yearned for by providing a loving home in a legally
recognized setting.  

   Notice and consent is required to ensured the rights of all parties are
protected.  The main concern is always the best interest of the child.  The
bottom line is finding a secure, loving and accepting home for the child.  This is
the case in agency adoptions, foster adoptions and step-parent adoptions.
Notice and Consent Law varies for unwed natural fathers - you should discuss
the various requirements and exceptions with the attorney.
