What are an adoptee's right when a parent dies? Posted on May 29, 2011

My mother just passed away and everything is a mess. The preacher took everything out of her safe that was in her closet. Nobody even told me she had passed away until after the funeral. I was told since she had given birth to a son and then adopted me. Then I am legally entitled to half of her estate. Is this right?
