“Adoption is the process by which an adult legally and permanently takes over parental responsibility for a child, and, at the same time, the rights and responsibilities of the child’s biological parent(s) or legal guardian(s) are terminated. In rare cases, an adult may adopt another adult.” – adoption.org
