Excerpt: ...of name shall be with the consent of the general guardian of such insane or mentally incompetent parent, and such consent of the general guardian shall have the same force and effect as if made by the insane or mentally incompetent person while in sound mind. The execution of the instrument must be acknowledged by the person signing before an officer authorized to take acknowledgments of deeds. The instrument should in all cases be accompanied by the approval of such adoption signed by the county agent of the State Board of Corrections and Charities. (See Juvenile Act Sec. II, Compiler's Sec. 202I.) The judge of probate with whom such instrument is filed shall thereupon make an investigation and if satisfied as to the good moral character and ability to support and educate such child and the suitableness of the home, he shall make an order that the persons adopting stand in place of the parents to such child, and the name of the child be changed as designated in such instrument, and said child shall thereupon become an heirat-law of the person so adopting, the same as if he' were in fact the child of such persons. It is worthy of note that the Supreme Court of the State of Michigan has held in re Klapp's estate, I64 North Western Reporter, Page 38I, that an adopted child may inherit from both his natural and adopted parents; also that where a second proceeding for the adoption of a child was signed and assented to by the parties, and approved by the probate court, it ipso facio revoked or superseded the first order of adoption of the child by other parties, and the child lost his right to inherit from his first adoptive parents.'
