It is not uncommon for a guardianship to take place prior to the adoption or a child. Guardianship of a child by a family member or a friend of the family, may be a good option if the parents of the child need some temporary or long term help with raising the child.
Guardianships may also be appropriate for an adult, if the adult is incapacitated mentally or physically.
