About LGBT Adoption
Recently, more and more birth parents are choosing same-sex couples over heterosexual couples. As reported on the 2000 Census, about 65,000 children lived with same sex parents. In 2012, 110,000 children live with same sex parents — nearly a 100% increase.
As an LGBT+ family, keep in mind that there may be differences in your adoption experience when compared to that of a heterosexual family. This could be due to a multitude of reasons, including laws unique to your location and finding a birth mother who is looking for a single or same-sex couple. Nevertheless, more and more LGBT+ people are adopting children who need a loving home, and you could be one of them.
Adoption takes commitment
Aside from the commitment to create a family, you must be willing and able to grow with your child/children as your family matures. At Two Spirit, our team of professionals will be here for continued support as you and your family grow.
Adoption takes time
Patience is truly a virtue when you are seeking to adopt a child. The orchestration of social, legal and governmental issues is sometimes frustrating and usually dependent on the skill, judgement and experience of those in whom you have placed your trust.
