I read through this mostly happy, slightly sad article about a family created by hook or by crook in Arizona, a state that does not currently allow second parent adoptions, or two parents of the same gender to adopt. Despite this prohibition, the dads profiled in this article have managed to bring twelve kids out of the foster care system and into their home. Nevada used to have a similar law which meant for years only one person in a gay couple could legally adopt children but with the passage of the domestic partnership registry during the last legislative session, in Nevada gay couples can now both legally adopt children.
Arizona may seem like a mystery when it comes to surrogacy, but the truth is that there are many successful journeys with surrogates in the State of Arizona. We took detailed look at surrogacy and assisted reproduction laws in the State of Arizona with Arizona Attorney Heather Strickland, moderated by Nevada and California Attorney Kim Surratt.
