    A joint adoption is when a couple (gay, lesbian or heterosexual) together adopts a child who was not previously the legal child of either member of the couple. After the adoption, the child has two legal parents. Joint adoptions by gay and lesbian couples now happen in every New England state, but in some circumstances are tied to whether the couple has a legal status like a civil union or marriage.
