About LGBTQ+ Adoption

More and more birth parents are choosing same-sex couples for adoption over heterosexual couples. As reported on the 2000 Census, about 65,000 children lived with same-sex parents. In 2012, 110,000 children lived with same-sex parents — nearly a 100% increase.

As an LGBTQ+ family, keep in mind that your adoptive family may have different experiences as compared to that of a heterosexual family. The laws unique to your location and the availability of a birth mother who is looking for a single or same-sex couples in Central Florida both play a role in the adoption process.

Adoption Takes Time

Patience is truly a virtue when you are seeking to adopt a child. According to the National Adoption Foundation, adopting a child can take 6 to 18 months, while newborn adoptions could be nearly 2 to 7 years. Your 26health adoption agent will help you weave together the threads of social, legal, and governmental issues.
