Adoption is a selfless, rewarding decision that takes place on both an emotional and legal level. At Miles Patterson Hansford Tallant, LLC, our adoption lawyers help Georgia families through the process of a domestic adoption from start to finish.
Few things are more rewarding than opening your home to a child who needs you. People adopt children for a number of reasons. Some are childless couples who would love to start a family, but infertility has rendered them unable to do so. Sometimes, step-parents are closer to their stepsons or stepdaughters than the children’s birth parents, so the new family decides to make the arrangement official. In other cases, biological grandparents or relatives decide to care for a child on behalf of a family member who is unable to do so.
