Whether a gay or lesbian person can become a foster parent will be determined on a state by state basis. Each state will have its own rules and regulations regarding fostering. Some regulations might include bedroom sizes, safety standards for the home, and/or number of children allowed in the home. I would recommend contacting your state and asking about requirements on whether they would support a gay foster parent.
