The Power of the Adoption Process
Adoption is a powerful process. It is a way of affirming your commitment and love to a child that is not even biologically related to you.
Legally speaking, adoption turns a person into the emotional, psychological, financial, and legal parent of a child. What distinguishes an adopted parent from a legal guardian is that a legal guardian possesses all the obligations of a parent, but the actual parental relationship still exists between the child and the biological mother and father. Adoption severs that tie, reassigning total parenthood to the adoptive parent.
