A Marine servicemember seeks pro bono assistance to adopt his little brother. The Marine’s minor brother is currently in the care of their mother. Their mother suffers from addiction problems and has agreed to terminate her parental rights so that the Marine can adopt his little brother and have a more secure life. The father’s whereabouts and parental rights are unknown, and he suffers from severe mental health issues. The Marine is currently overseas, but has spoken to his command and is willing and able to move back to the United States if necessary.
