Review of the stepparent adoption process

There are many children in the Rockford, Illinois, area who live with one of their biological parents and a stepparent. When the other biological parent is capable and involved in the child's life, then a stepparent must remain content to be the best role model for the child that they can be.

The last thing either of you likely wants is to become a stereotypical “Disneyland dad” – or mom – who sees his or her kids only on alternating weekends.
