The Open Adoption Option

Open adoption (or independent adoption without an agency) is a good choice for prospective gay and lesbian parents. By eliminating interaction with an agency, you avoid the barriers some create – such as restrictions based on marital status or sexual orientation. You are responsible for finding a birth parent, a social worker, and a judge; and the typical cost begins at $9,000 but can exceed $35,000.

On it’s web site, the Human Rights Campaign offers important steps to follow if you’re interested in pursuing open adoption.
