Adoption Agency Perspectives on Lesbian and Gay Prospective Parents: A National Study.
Brodzinsky, David M.; Patterson, Charlotte J.; Vaziri, Mahnoush
Adoption Quarterly, v5 n3 p5-23 2002
A nation-wide survey of adoption agencies examined policies, practices, and attitudes regarding lesbian/gay prospective adoptive parents. Attitudes and practices were found to vary as a function of agency religious affiliation. Many adoption professionals were willing to work with lesbian/gay prospective parents, and nearly 38 percent of respondents indicated that their agency had made at least one adoption placement with a lesbian or gay adult in the past 2 years.
