Do an online search.
Don’t underestimate a Google search, especially if you live in an area where your options are less than abundant. You may be able to connect with families in your state who have publicly shared their experiences through online groups, blogs or social media and get agency recommendations from them. Search for personal stories about LGBTQ adoption, parenting groups or even search national support organizations. You might even try the online resources sections of LGBTQ-focused magazines and newspapers that you enjoy. Through online searching, it’s possible you may directly discover an agency that is licensed in more than one state and is happy to work with you in your location. Remember that there are many wonderful adoption professionals, and no matter where you live, it is possible to find someone who will help you to grow your family.
