Re: Step-parent Adoption
I'm in the same boat. Haven't seen my ex since I got pregnant and have been with my, now, husband since I found out I was pregnant. My son's 3 now and we're getting ready to start the adoption process next month! If you feel in your heart that it's right and the kids and your hubby are okay with it, DO IT.
I couldn't have asked for a better father for my son and now that we are expecting one of our own, I can't think of a better reason to get the adoption going. I want the kids to have the same last name and I don't want them to have to question anything. I know that if something happends to me, my husband will take care of my son -no question. But, we both agreed to get a will at the same time as the adoption so if something does happen, he gets the kids, and if something happens to the both of us, his mom gets both of them. Good luck!
