Non married couple adopting...
My partner are not a LGBT couple but in many ways we are similar. We are not legally wed.
I am disabled and I get my medical from the state, which provide me with Personal Care Attendants. If we were to marry I would lose my medical and the vital care I need to live. We have a homestudy and live like a married couple. We even had a commitment ceremony. This has been a huge obstical in our adoption plans. However, now we have been matched. Contracts and all the “official” stuff are pending, but we caught a snag today. When I spoke to the lawyer handling this situation he isn’t sure how we will be able to finalize. We live in KS and he said they don’t do two parent adoptions. Nor do they do one parent adopting while the other takes guardianship (although we have friends who have done that).
I hope this doesn’t interupt our match! Have any of you been in a similar situation? How did you adopt your children? Help!!
