Knoxville Adoption Attorneys Supporting Step-Parent And Relative Adoptions

Every day in Tennessee relatives step forward and offer to care for a child in their family who is unable to live with their parents whether because the parents have died, are unfit, incarcerated, have abandoned the child or willingly given them up. Kinship adoption allows the child to maintain ties to their family of origin, and states generally give preferences to relatives who are willing and able to make the commitment to attend to the child’s needs for the rest of their life.
