Family Building Through Adoption for LGBTQ Dads

Increasingly, LGBTQ parents are choosing to build their families through adoption. Today, nearly one-quarter (21.4%) of same-sex couples with children have chosen to adopt. There are over 100,000 children in the U.S. waiting to be adopted into a good, loving home – and yours could be one of them.

There are many paths to adoption and understanding the landscape is critical to choosing the one right for you. Setting realistic expectations is the first step towards embracing what lies ahead. Our goal at Gay Parents to Be is to provide you with the information you need to begin your adoption journey.
