It's no secret that gay couples have been adopting children for years. However, now that legislation has passed laws allowing legal adoption by same-sex parents in many states, the need for "secret adoptions" is over. In fact, when it comes to the standard adoption home study, it's best to be as open as possible.
Adoption home studies are an evaluation of your home life and living space. These are done to be sure your future adopted child will have a safe, secure, and happy life with you and your partner. Topics ranging from your financial status to the way you've set up your child's room will be reviewed. Regardless of any stigmas against gay adoption that you may still feel are active in our society, be as honest as you can. This will only improve your chances of being approved.
