Yes. In the majority of the cases it pertains to siblings. It is preferable that children of the same family remain together. Therefore the court gives special attention to those type of adoptions.

It really depends on whether or not it is determined that you can financially support more than one.

In the case of intercountry adoptions, the government of the child's country makes the rules. For example, China does not allow the adoption of more than one child at a time except in the case of twins - which are rare. Many countries seem to go with the one child at a time policy.

Yes, an immigrant can adopt a US child. However, it is uncommon. Most of the time, US natives adopt an immigrant child.

I don't think so. Cuz she don't have time to adopt a child. She cares about them but she don't have time for this.

It is difficult to be approved but it is possible. The difficulty comes in the ability to care for the child. Many times, both parents work but because there are two people caring for the child, they can take turns. However with one person, it is more difficult to make time to care for the child. If you are financially stable and can provide time for the child the ability to adopt will become greater.

If he has the child more than 50% of the time, which need to be documented.

Your actual father (biological father or husband of your mother at the time of your birth) does not need to adopt you; you are already his child. What is usually more relevant is "how does your step-father adopt you" or "how does your dad get exclusive custody of you." The answers to these questions differ greatly from state to state and country to country.
