"Is it unethical of my cousin not to tell an adoption agency that she's a lesbian?"
My lesbian cousin is adopting a little girl from Russia without telling the agency that she’s gay. Is that unethical?
As you may or may not know, the fact that your cousin is a lesbian prohibits her from adopting from many countries overseas. In my book, that’s unethical. The good news is that most countries (including Russia) don’t question a prospective parent’s sexual orientation when it comes to adopting, which means as long as your cousin provided all the required information and did not file any false documents, there is no ethical issue.
