There's a few very important things to remember while you're reading this blog ~
1) All states have different rules.
2) Every family has to make their own decisions about what is best for them and their child.
3) I am not a lawyer nor do I profess to be one. I am also NOT someone you should take advice from without consulting the "real" professionals before making decisions that involve your loved one.
***For information regarding the laws in the state or country in which you live, you should contact your local agencies and/or an attorney.
