Adoption is the process through which a child becomes a legal member of a new family. In some instances neither birthparent is involved in the new family. In others, such as stepparent adoption, one birthparent will still be present, but legal rights will be bestowed upon the new spouse as well. Not only does adoption give one or more new parents legal rights over a child, it entitles the child to the same rights as birth children as regards inheritance, child support, and other legal considerations.
