I am! My husband is in the Army. I'm glad to find this thread, as it's only been over the past few weeks that we feel God has really been pushing us toward adoption. We still have so many questions - but my initial fear is that adoption will be much harder with us being an active duty military family. I'm glad to see that there are others here in our situation that can maybe offer some support!

I'm still trying to collect my thoughts and questions - but I hope to post some soon, and maybe you ladies can offer some answers. Nice to "meet" you all!

My husband is Army. He is trying to adopt my 13yr old. He is deployed at the moment, and I don't know how much I can do without him actually here. With power of attorney and things like that. I bought a house with him deployed, but I don't think it will be as easy as that. We are in Ft. Hood, TX, but the Birth father resides in California. Does anyone know how I should proceed? In California, or Texas?

There is an adoption attorney here in Killeen that likely could provide advice to you (we are at Fort Hood also). I seriously doubt that you could proceed with the a step parent adoption without him present, power of attorney or not - unless presenting other affidavits from him are acceptable. But you really need to speak to an attorney. The adoption attorney in Killeen is in the phone book. PM me if you cannot find their information.

My husband just ETS'd but we are at Hood also. We couldn't do anything while he was gone whether I had POA or not. He had to be able to physically attend training, etc.
He could have done conferences for court but not the training and stuff.
