Navigating The Path Toward Adoption

Depending on the situation, adoption can seem like a long and confusing process. In some cases, parental figures have already established a relationship with the child and the legal requirements may seem excessive. In other cases, there may be conflicts and obstacles that are difficult to overcome.

A skilled adoption attorney can help you find a path to continue on the journey of establishing your Tennessee family while keeping the focus on what is best for the child. The Odeneal Firm believes that building a family should be intentional and purpose-driven. I can answer your questions about adoption and what steps to take to move forward.

The Journey To Family

People come together in many ways. It is no surprise, then, that families are formed through a variety of situations and circumstances.

There are many reasons why you may be interested in pursuing the adoption of a child, including:

  • Helping the child of a friend or family member whose caregiver can no longer provide appropriate care
  • Stepping in for a parent who has been deployed overseas with an indefinite time frame
  • Adopting as a heterosexual or same-sex couple through a private arrangement or with the help of an agency
  • Taking a stepparent-stepchild relationship to the next level
  • Raising a grandchild

The journey is not the same for everyone but being able to provide compassionate care for a child is always the goal. I enjoy celebrating the magic of every adoption. As your dedicated family-oriented lawyer, I can help you map out the road to adoption. I look forward to sharing your joy in this precious path.
