NEW YORK — A same-sex couple in New York says an Arizona-based Web site has barred them from posting an adoption profile.

The advocacy group Lambda Legal said Tuesday it has complained to the New York attorney general's office about Adoption Profiles, LLC and Adoption Media, LLC.

Lambda Legal says Rosario Gennaro and Alexander Gardner were certified by a court as qualified adoptive parents. But when they decided to seek an online match with ParentProfiles.com, they learned that applicants were required to be "husband and wife."

Says Gennaro: "Birth parents should have the opportunity to review our profile and see what a good home we have to offer a child."

The companies did not immediately respond to e-mail requests for comment.
