Current status
Ambiguous
Any adult may petition, and married and civil union-ed couples must petition jointly per Revised Statute §578-1.

The status is ambiguous because second-parent adoption for same-sex couples varies by judge and county, and no decision by the lower court has been approved by case law in appellate court, nor by state statute.

Conversion Therapy is currently legal. No law currently bans it, despite organizations such as the American Psychological Association denouncing it. Though it's not actually ambiguous (It is in fact legal), this is the best indicator of the available options.
