This chapter discusses the impact of the new status of “kinship adoption” on family relationships. It reviews how the law regulates parent/child relationships. It argues that kinship adoption could be an effective solution when it is desired by all parties that the child maintain some level of relationship with one or both birth parents after adoption by a relative, family friend, or foster parent.
