Illinois recognizes four types of adoption:
• Stepparent adoption: A stepparent will accept the legal responsibility of caring for a child.
• Co-parent adoption: A non-birth parent will legally adopt the child of their partner.
• Grandparent adoption: Grandparents or other relatives will legally adopt a child to keep him or her in the family if parents suddenly die or are incapacitated.
• Adopting from birth parents: Families will adopt children directly from birth parents.
