If a straight couple and a gay couple apply for the same child, which one gets the child?

    It doesn't work that way. In a voluntary adoption, the birthmother chooses the parents. In an involuntary adoption, preference is usually given to the foster parents.

    Honestly, depending on the agency, it should fall who seems to be a better fit aka meaning better financial stability, housing, etc not based off sexual orientation

    Whomever the expectant parents choose. It could be neither one.

    Depends on a few things - but more then likely the agency would let the child go to a straight couple so the child would grow up with a mother and a father.

      The "agency" doesn't choose the parents. The biological mother/parents are given applicants and choose through a series of steps. Now the mother/parents MAY give up that right, but it isn't very common.

    Whichever one the biological mother/parents choose.

    Uh... that ain't how it dun wurk. If you wanna foster-to-adopt, DSS chooses the best situation for the child(ren), and it ain't no cookie-cutter answer.

    Whichever couple the parents placing the child for adoption choose.

      Well ... yes ... but the question makes it sound like babies are being auctioned off to the highest bidder.

    The starving Africans get the child because that is where God puts most children when he sends them to the Earth
