Abstract:     
This paper examines the emerging possibilities for the American adoption model as American society continues to grow and evolve in its understanding of the needs and rights of children to have permanent, secure family settings in which to develop and mature. Specifically, this paper addresses the strengthening of some of the weaker threads of contemporary judicial adoption decrees which confer rights on persons who choose to assume parental roles for children and who are not exclusively heterosexual.
