Additional Disclaimer Regarding Adoptions

This attorney makes no promises nor guarantees about the success of completing an adoption on your behalf. Please know that adoptions can take a very long time to complete, if at all, and can be extremely emotional for all parties involved. Although Stephanie is an attorney in Covington, she may help you adopt a child wherever you may be in south Louisiana.
