Nobody likes to think that their days are numbered and many people refuse to consider the generation of a will until they get to their very advanced years. Yet the stark fact is that death can come at any time and without warning and if you haven't made plans for those who're left behind, this can cause considerable upset and confusion. Remember, the family will be mourning your loss as it is and you want to make sure that what you do leave behind goes to the right people.
If you are looking to adopt a child, there are a lot of decisions to make. You will need to decide on the preferred age of the child, where to adopt from, and whether or not you want an open or closed adoption. With an open adoption, you still remain in contact with the birth parents, providing updates about the child. In a closed adoption, there is none or very little contact after the adoption is complete.
