In your message to me, you asked what an "unrelated adoption" is.

An "unrelated adoption" is an adoption by parties not related to the child. This is also called "stranger" adoption.

Unrelated adoptions are in contrast to "related adoptions" which are adoptions by relatives of the child.

That is the extent of my knowledge. :)

You should wait for the forum members who are experienced in family law matters to tell you more.
