Angel Adoption is a place where birth mothers and prospective adoptive parent(s) are given unfettered freedom to make private and personal arrangements for the care of their children/children to be. Indeed, Angel Adoption is a place where each client’s individuality, beliefs, religion, ethnicity, nationality, marital status, and sexual orientation are embraced and respected.
In our experience, most of the birth mothers we work with are open to exploring all family types in selecting the parent or parents with whom they wish to place their child for adoption. Our expansive network provides us with the flexibility to produce the right match that satisfies the preferences of our prospective adoptive parents and our birth mothers.
We work with prospective gay and lesbian parents throughout the United States; however, the adoption process varies from state to state. For example California, which has well-established laws and procedures for adoption by gay and lesbian prospective adoptive parents. Although laws of other states vary and are currently in a state of flux, if either the prospective adoptive parents or the birth mother reside in California, the adoption can be completed under California law.
If neither the prospective adoptive parents nor the birth mother reside in California, it is still extremely likely that a gay or lesbian couple will be able to adopt a child even if they reside in a state that prohibits gay or lesbian adoptions. The vast majority of states currently permits single-parent and second parent adoptions regardless of sexual orientation. The United States Constitution requires that adoptions finalized in one state must be legally recognized by all other states, thus adoption still offers the most security in protecting the parent-child relationship of gay and lesbian parents across jurisdictions.
Angel Adoption can refer you to attorneys that are experienced in preparing cases to be finalized with the assistance of local counsel in all 50 states and have worked with many out-of-state gay and lesbian adoptive parents. Indeed, we have a network of adoption attorneys and professionals across the country ready to assist.
