Gay and Lesbian Adoptive and Foster Care Placements: Can They Meet the Needs of Waiting Children?
Brooks, Devon; Goldberg, Sheryl
Social Work, v46 n2 p147-57 Apr 2001
Explored a potentially viable, although controversial and little-researched, option for increasing the pool of prospective parents for children in need of adoptive homes: adoptions by gay men and lesbians. Analysis of data suggests gays and lesbians experience considerable obstacles in their efforts to become parents. Implications for practice and policy are offered. (BF)
