We reinsure you our adoption agency doesn’t discriminate regardless of your sexual orientation, race, religious background, etc. Our goal is to provide you with support while walking you through the entire adoption process.

Things To Consider When Choosing an LGBTQ+ Adoptive Family

Choosing an LGBTQ+ adoptive family is a great way to show support for the LGBTQ+ community. In addition, statistics show that children adopted by LGBTQ+ couples are generally more self-aware, tolerant, and accepting of others, which are great qualities to have when looking for a happy and healthy home for your child. Some other things to know when putting a child up for adoption are your adoption plan options. There are three types of adoption plans you can choose from an open, semi-open, and closed adoption. Here is a closer look at what those adoption plans are:

  • Open adoption: This is when the adoptive family agrees to continue communicating after placement. 
  • Semi-open adoption: This means little to no contact between you or the adoptive family is made.
  • Closed adoption: This is when no communication is made, no information is shared, apart from your medical history, and all information about the child’s upbringing is kept from you.

While deciding what adoption plan, you can write a list of qualities you would like in your adoptive family. If part of that list has qualities like a family that is accepting, tolerable, and open-minded. An LGBTQ+ couple would be a great choice for your adoptive family!

Moving Forward With The Adoption Process

When it comes to adoption laws, both same-sex and opposite-sex couples are treated equally. This includes the State of Kansas when it comes to your Witichia adoption. The adoption laws are the same in every state, meaning a home study will be done. A home study consists of background checks, home safety checks, interviews, and several documents/paperwork. At Adoption Choices of Kansas, the adoptive families we show you have already passed their home checks, So you can rest assured your child will be in a safe and loving home.

Once you have chosen an adoptive family, your adoption counselor will help you with pre-placement counseling. This will help you learn more about what it will be like when your child is for adoption. Also, during the matching process, if you want, you can see how the adoptive family (you chose) operates before adoption. Afterward, your adoption counselor will walk you through placement and then finalization. We will continue to stay in touch with you through the process.

When it comes to your adoption journey, we want to make sure you have a unique experience. That’s why we make sure you have control over your adoption plan, that you’re able to choose your adoptive family (even if it is an LGBTQ+ couple) and that it is overall beneficial for you and your child.
