here's the scoop! my older daughter is adopted! she claims "you didn't need to sign anything or be in court! " they law clearly states that the natural parents : whereas found guilty of being unfit, or of abandenmant can the adoption not need to be signed! um.. my question is at what degree is this true! and is it legal for an adoption to take place if the natrual parents don't sign their rights away/ what part of that is legal? #1
