Adoption of the Month - February 2014

Our family consists of the three of us.  My name is Tim Bard and along with my wife Tessa and our son Cord, we are now a family.   Adoption became an option for our family when my stepson’s father made the decision to give up his parental rights to his son. 

Adoption seemed like the next likely step.  Since I was already supporting our son both financially and emotionally, we decided to complete the process so that we could become a family so that I would become Cord’s legal father.

If you are a step parent and considering adoption I would never hesitate to get an adoption attorney. Mark is the best!  It may cost a little bit extra hiring an attorney than doing it yourself, but it really helped speed up our process.  It is so hard to know where to start and how to proceed and Mark made it easy. 

If you need any help with the Adoption process or have any questions, do not hesitate to call Mark. He will help you throughout and does a wonderful job at making this the best possible experience for you. He made this process very fast and easy for us since we were in a time crunch. He also charges about a quarter of the cost of our other attorney who represented us for our child support case.

Adoption has changed our lives completely and in the best possible way.   We were able to move to Japan without any complications or problems.  And now we are a forever family, and for that we are eternally grateful.
