Hello. My DP is 22 weeks pregnant with our first. Does anyone know where I can get information about second parent adoption in PA, specifically Pittsburgh? We are trying to find a lawyer to make sure we have guardianship agreements in place and to start the adoption process. I haven't been able to find any resources on lawyers that are experienced with this.

Welcome to MDC!

I don't know about PA at all, but when we were going through it, I joined a local listserve for GLBTQ families, and asked there. That made it very simple! I'm sure there's something similar for Pittsburgh GLBTQ families . . . That's probably where I'd start if I were you.

We actually have yet to get around to doing the second-parent adoption for ds3 (now 2 years old!); at this point we may just wait and do his after the baby's born so we can do them together.

Congrats on your baby bean!

Hi Heidi!

I'm in Pittsburgh, too!! Lex is totally right, the first place I'd ask would be on the PGHFLO (Families Like Ours) listserve. Here is the link to the group if you aren't already a member: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PGHFLO/

Hope this is helpful. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions!
