Your Legal Resource for Nashville Adoption Laws
One of the most difficult decisions a birth parent can make is deciding to put his or her child up for adoption.
By the same token, one of the most loving and courageous moves a couple can make is to adopt a child, especially an older, minority or disabled child who may be more difficult to place in a loving home.
Adoption gives couples and other adoptive parents the opportunity to create a rewarding, lifelong relationship with a child. Birth parents can rest assured that their child will be raised in a loving, secure home.
