MLB pitcher and wife finalize adoption of their son

New Jersey families come in so many varieties, but the one thing they have in common is love. For some couples, adoption is the way they choose to complete their family, and they have differing reasons for choosing this path. It can be a long process, but the reward at the end of it all makes it worthwhile. The recent adoption of a baby boy by MLB pitcher, Adam Wainwright, and his wife shows just how wonderful the event can be.

Wainwright and his wife have four daughters, but have considered expanding their family through adoption for around eight years. Because of Wainwright's baseball career, they were unsure about the timing. Over the years, they felt as though many things were pointing them in the direction of adoption, and they decided to pursue it in earnest last year. Wainwright suffered a few minor injuries that kept him from playing regularly, so he and his wife decided to take his healing time to make their dream a reality.

They considered several adoption agencies, were interviewed by multiple social workers and had a great deal of paperwork to complete. The Wainwrights were excited to have this chance nonetheless and they went on the adoption registry in early fall last year. In January, the adoption agency informed them they had been selected by a woman who was going to give birth to a boy. They were overjoyed and brought him home as soon as they were allowed. The adoption recently became official, though the whole family has been caring for the boy for around two months now.

Though the process of adoption is a happy one, it requires a great deal of care to ensure that the proper rights are transferred to the new parents. An experienced family law attorney can assist New Jersey families through the entire event. The attorney can ensure that all legal matters are handled comprehensively so that the family can focus on loving the new member of the household.
