  • You can get "adopted" at any time.... I was officially adopted by my step-dad when I was 19..I turn 20 the year I was adopted.

    I did not take his last name, like my siblings did, because I was engaged to be married 10 months from the adoption date and I didn't want to get all the name change stuff when I was going to be getting married and doing name change stuff then.

    Of course my adoption was a little different I had actual legal say...but it was still done.
