Adoption is one of the primary ways that parents who are LGBTQ create families, whether through the public foster care system, a private agency, or simply a second-parent adoption of a partner or spouse’s child. However, in most places across the country LGBTQ individuals and couples face barriers to adoption, making it difficult or sometimes impossible for these loving, qualified people to create families.
