LGBTQ+ Adoption

Adoption Choice, Inc. believes families are formed in many different ways and welcomes all to apply. We serve individuals and families regardless of any race, ethnicity, disability, religion, age, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. We work with prospective LGBTQ+ 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 the passage of marriage equality in Wisconsin and the entire United States, the rights and responsibilities of marriage, including adoption, apply to same-sex and LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ couples to complete this form of adoption.

LGBTQ+ individuals and couples 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 a part of the LGBTQ+ community 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.
