Vidor, TX asked in Family Law, Adoption and Child Custody for Louisiana

Q: Can my biological brother that was adopted move in with me at age 15, when I was also adopted and am now an adult

It was a closed adoption I don’t want to take him from his family but we both want to see and know eachother. I was also adopted and I have no affiliation with my mother or father is there any way we can either meet at a public place for visitation or be able to talk on the phone?
