Is adoption right for me?
For some people, now is not the time to become a parent. Sometimes, young mothers may unselfishly recognize that they may not have the resources or support to be able to provide for a child. It can a generous and mature decision to place a baby for adoption when there are couples who are prepared and thrilled to provide a loving, nurturing environment for children. In these instances, an open or closed adoption or a hybrid semi-open adoption might be beautiful answers. Kathryn Wayne-Spindler & Associates staff recognizes that choosing to place your child for adoption can be a heart-wrenching and complicated decision. We have been a part of many successful matches and we understand the emotional and well as the legal components of both sides of the process. We can walk you through this confusing time.

Stepparents play a big role in raising responsible, healthy, happy children. It is often in the best interests of the children and all parents for the stepparent to have the same rights and obligations as a biological parent. After a new marriage, stepparent adoption can complete your family. We assist families in a variety of stepparent adoption-related matters, including the termination of parental rights and the petition to adopt.
