so if i need papers how and where do I get themAnswer Question
I live and work in Washington state. If your dghtr ever needs any kind of surgery or exam under anesthesia; it is required to have "informed consent" signed. and in order for this to be legal, you have to be named POA (power of attorney) to legally speak for her in almost any and all situations you may come upon.

You must go to court to have yourself named POA. It should be very easy and not contested since you are birth mom. Bring her birth certificate and your driver's license to District Court and have papers drawn up. I am not sure if you have to hire an attorney or not. I wouldn't think so, though. I hope you follow up on this- and that it isn't too much of a hassle for you!!
