Hi,
My wife is due in March, so we are starting to think about 2nd parent adoption. Has anyone done one in PA? We used a known donor, so I am guessing that will add another legal step. Thanks.

I believe the donor would have to formally give up his parental rights.  I don't know what the process is for PA.  I googled 2nd parent adoption CA for my state and found step-by-step info on how to do it.  You can use a lawyer to do the adoption or do it yourself usually.  You might be able to call NCLR and get more info.  Congratulations on the pregnancy!
