As might be expected, Step Parent Adoption is the most common form of adoption.
There are a large number of children in the United States waiting to find an adoptive home. These children are in the legal custody of county or city Departments of Social Services (sometimes called Family Services), and have been removed from their parents because of abuse or neglect. These children range in age from infants to teens. In Virginia alone, there are about 4,000 children waiting for "forever homes."
