The Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute is conducting a research-based project that aims to increase and improve the adoption of children by lesbian and gay individuals and couples. As part of the project, they are collecting information through a survey of LGBT parents on their experiences in adopting children, as well as their perceptions of their current needs.


Participating in this study will first require the completion of a questionnaire.  Study participants will receive the survey by mail, with a stamped envelope for returning the document. Respondents will have the option of filling out the survey anonymously. This research, which is headed by David Brodzinsky, Ph.D and Scott Ryan, Ph.D., has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Florida State University.

Individuals interested in participating in the survey study should contact David Brodzinsky, Ph.D., at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
