LGBTQ Adoption

Adoption Choice, Inc. believes families are formed in many different ways and welcomes all to apply. We are inclusive and do not discriminate. We work with prospective gay and lesbian individuals throughout Wisconsin. Adoption Choice, Inc. has a long history of supporting the LGBTQ community.  Even prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality in 2015, we were assisting LGBTQ couples through Partner Adoption.

With marriage equality, same-sex couples are now allowed to marry in Wisconsin and all other states. Wisconsin must also recognize marriages from other states. In addition, the rights and responsibilities of marriage, including adoption, apply to same-sex marriages.  For more information on significant legal cases affecting LGBTQ families, click here.

Adoption Choice, Inc. welcomes LGBTQ families who are pursuing all types of adoptions.  Step-Parent adoption has been available since the marriage equality ruling. Adoption Choice has assisted hundreds of gay and lesbian couples complete this form of adoption.

LGBTQ families are encouraged to apply for infant adoption through our agency program or through interstate adoption.  If you are interested in adopting an older child or sibling group from Foster Care, we can assist. Whatever your adoption journey, Adoption Choice can help!

If you are LGBTQ and hoping to adopt an infant, older child, relative, sibling group, or your partner’s child, you are in the right place!  Contact us today to begin your adoption journey.
