    My husband wants to adopt my daughter. In VA
    My husband wants to adopt my daughter, he has been her father almost all her life. Her biological father has never been around and never signed the birth certificate. I am trying to find the steps to take to get her adopted, I will not change my last name until the adoption is final. (she has mine). We are in VA. Can anyone send me in the right direction? I would greatly appreciate it :)
