Re: Adoption of grandchild

Might be something in here

Caryl, do you know what the situation would be if you did adopt regarding his trust fund, etc? Presumably you'd be managing on his behalf and I assume that would require you to report any such accounts to the IRS as you do for yourself.

I don't know if anything in here would help on the will side of things.

Social services, either here or in the UK, may step in if they decide you're not fit - for whatever reason/s - to be able to look after him properly. You must be getting on in years yourself if your daughter is 50 and if you get health problems, etc, down the line they may decide it would simply be too much for you to cope with.
