Q&A: Which countries allow gay adoption?
Question by Jenny: Which countries allow gay adoption?
As in, what countries would a homosexual couple be able to find a child overseas to adopt? 🙂
I know China only allows heterosexual couples to adopt their children. I wanted to know if that applied to all other countries affiliated with adoption agencies.
Answer by J.C.
Adoption by same-sex couples is currently legal in the following countries: Andorra, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and Uruguay. It is also legal in 14 states in the United States, the territory of Guam, and one territory and state in Australia (ACT and WA). In Germany, Finland, Greenland, Israel, and the Australian state of Tasmania, “stepchild-adoption” is permitted, so that the partner in a civil union can adopt the natural (or sometimes even adopted) child of his or her partner.
