We contacted our lawyer to get the ball rolling on a number of things, but most importantly our wills and to to prepare for A. to adopt the baby. While we’re waiting to meet with her I find myself wanting to know how the second parent adoption works – will we need a home study, do we have to wait till the baby is six months old before she can adopt?, etc. (Having a home study and waiting six months seems so freaking ridiculous to me!) When I google for this information I find lots of great resources but they all seem to be out of date with respect to Mass.achusetts legalizing same sex marriage. Does our marital status change any of this? So if there are an MA readers out there that have any info, I’d love to know. Thanks.
