Each year, thousands of children are adopted across the United States. In Colorado, adoption can be agreed to by the parents or ordered by a court. The most common adoption is when a step-parent decides to legally adopt a husband or wife’s child from a previous relationship. Through the procedure of adoption, all of the rights and responsibilities of the child are turned over from one or both natural parents to the adoptive parent.

The adoptive parents are then responsible for the well-being of the minor child and must adequately provide for them in every area of the child’s needs.
