My FH was a single dad when we met, and has always raised his little boy on his own. I will be adopting him after we get married…. Its like a bonus! I got FH, AND his sweet lil mini me 🙂
Has anyone else been through this process? I am so excited, but would love to hear a little more on your experiences, what to expect, etc.

my DH and i don’t have children, but i think it’s awesome that you’re adopting his son! Congratulations and happy wishes to you and your new family.

That’s so awesome! I am not legally adopting my stepchildren but I am adding them to my health insurance.
My FH is also a single dad but their Mom would never let me adopt them, even though she is not in their lives. I totally would in a heartbeat tho!
Best of luck to your new family 🙂

My FH is adopting my daughter once we get married. So far the process seems a bit confusing. I’m a tad concerned that I will need her bio-father’s signature. I have full custody and he hasn’t seen her since she was 2 weeks old, but I was told that I will still need his approval.

I wish I had advice for you but, either way that sound fantastic. I was raised by a single parent and I would have loved for my mother to have a loving spouce that wanted to adopt me.

@tranquility:It depends what state you live in. Also, whether or not you are able to make reasonable attempts to reach him.
My FI is adopting my daughter. Her bio dad gave up his rights. It’s funny because I always think of her as me and FI’s daughter. I would adopt his son but he lives with his mother half time.
My FI and six year old daughter are very close. Adopting her was his idea. Sometimes I feel like I hit the jackpot. He’s a wonderful man who adores me and my daughter 🙂

I really hope that my FH can eventually adopt my son. His father doesn’t come around a lot and is running from the child support people, but I think he is too stubborn to admit that he doesn’t want the responsibility. You’re so lucky!
