Make Disabled Parent Adoption Happen
We believe that every child has the right to a loving, nurturing and permanent family, and that people from a variety of life experiences offer strengths for these children. Therefore, it is the policy of the National Adoption Center that no person should be denied consideration in the adoption process solely based on marital status, sexual orientation, lifestyle, disability, physical appearance, race, gender, age, religion and/or size of family.
People with disabilities can and do adopt, and disabled parent adoption is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act. As with adoption in general, your support group is very important. Besides your family and friends, other support can be found through online and face to face support groups. Check with the organizations which provide community for those with your disability, as they may have a parenting support group too.
The center is committed to providing assistance to those who wish to pursue disabled parent adoption. Under development are a few programs which will help you along your way. Watch here for updates as we debut those programs and services. Until then, please contact us for further disabled parent adoption information.
