Special Adoptions

"Special adoptions" are more than just the adoption of children with special needs. There are several adoption situations that are considered outside the norm and which we refer to as special adoptions. Check out the various types of "special adoptions" below.

Adoption of Children with Special Needs

Based on state and federal government reports, there are over 100,000 children in the U.S. alone who have special needs and are waiting to be adopted. While there are also many children with special needs in foreign countries, most of the adoptions of special needs children are done through US state programs.  In order to help facilitate the adoption of a special needs child the state and U.S. governments provide financial assistance.

Single Parent Adoptions

A single woman or single man is all too often faced with more obstacles to adopting a child than a married couple.  This is true whether it is a single man or woman adopting or whether the child is a healthy or special needs child.  However, the adoption of a healthy child by a single man or single woman has become common enough that with some extra research and effort a single person can adopt a healthy child.

Adoptions by Relatives

Relatives of the birth mother or birth father may want to adopt the birth mother's child. However, each state has its own definition of what constitute a "relative".  Furthermore, who is a "relative" and what the process is for that "relative" to adopt, changes from state to state.

Adoptions by Step-Parents

Step-parent adoption is by far the most common type of child adoption. In a step-parent adoption you may or may not need the help of an adoption agency, but you will need the help of a child adoption attorney to determine the relevant legal requirements and to assist in the process.

Transracial and Transcultural Child Adoption

In a transracial or transcultural child adoption you will be adopting a child that is of a race or ethnic group that is different than yours.  In the U. S. trans-racial or trans-cultural child adoption often refers to the placement of a Black, Hispanic, Asian child or a child from another country with U.S. Caucasian adoptive parents; however, there are many other types of transracial or transcultural adoption.

Gay and Lesbian Adoptions

Gay and lesbian singles and couples often find many doors closed to them and  can have a difficult time in a child adoption.  This site lists several organizations and publications supporting gay and lesbian parenting, including the status of gay and lesbian parenting, issues, laws, and more.
