2 sisters create family through adoption

As almost anyone who has shared time with close friends will verify, family can encompass more than those with whom one shares genetic ties. Many California families have been formed through an adoption or other arrangement. Regardless of how they come into being, family bonds can last a lifetime and beyond.

Recently, two women came forward to share their experience with adoption and how it drew them even closer together. While many siblings tend to drift apart over the years, especially when they live in different states, these two sisters found that a child had the power to cement their bonds. The one sister had desired to raise her own children one day and was eager to start a family once she and her husband were married. Her divorced sister had children and discovered after a relationship breakup that she was expecting another child. The first sister discovered that she and her spouse may never have their own biological children due to fertility problems.

When the second sister suggested that the couple adopt her unborn baby, the husband was apprehensive at first. The expectant sister relocated to the couple's state, and they all decided to proceed with the process. The two sisters decided to announce the adoption at a holiday gathering. The pregnant sister went into labor at the event. 

There are several legal avenues to adoption. The sisters learned that adopting through the family was less intrusive and not as costly as some options can become and thus far their story has been a successful one for all parties involved. California residents who are contemplating whether an adoption would be the best option for them may seek further information from a family law professional concerning the process and which avenue would best suit them and the child involved.
