Hi Dianne. I am in the process of being adopted as well. I hope things will work out ok. Well answering to your question. There are 26 states that allow adult adoptions but I dont believe that NJ is one of those. So if you want to be adopted, your step-parents will need to be resident of one of the 26 states that allow it. Getting resident from another state is not that hard. I think that they will only need to live in that state for about six months. Good luck to you.
