Adoption has two significant impacts. First, the adoption creates a new and permanent legal relationship between the adopting parent and the adoptee (child). Second, the adoption permanently severs all legal relationships between the adoptee (child) and his or her biological parents. Since the parent-child relationship is a foundation of our society and an adoption severs and creates anew the parent-child relationship, the State of North Carolina closely regulates the adoption process through the General Statutes. Following the adoption, the adopting family will enjoy the same legal status as if the child was born of the adopting parents.
