    Answered . Adoption isn't just for babies. If you are trying to obtain custody of a child who is your relative, I strongly suggest you consult with a local attorney as soon as possible so you can be advised of all the necessary steps and proceed accordingly. You can find attorneys in your area by searching among the profiles here on Avvo. Good luck!
