Adoption is a statutory legal process where parental rights are transferred from birth parents to adoptive parents.  Adoption is a serious matter requiring the termination of the parental rights of the birth parents coupled with the assumption of legal responsibilities by adoptive parents.  At the conclusion of an adoption, adopted children, for all intents and purposes, become the children of the parents who adopt them.  The general policy behind adoptions is to promote the welfare of children.  Another policy behind adoptions is to promote the interests of the biological parents, adoptive parents and the state.
