A leading adoption and parenting network, AdoptiveFamilies.com, features Meryl B. Rosenberg's advice for married LGBT parents. Her article, Marriage Equality Does Not Ensure Adoption Equality explains what LGBT parents must do to protect their parental rights.

The legal aspects of gay and lesbian parentage continue to be complex. States may still deny same-sex parents the legal protections of parenthood despite their marital status.
If you’re a gay or lesbian couple, visit the second-parent and step-parent adoption page to find out what protections ARTparenting can offer your family.
