For many couples, becoming parents is the most rewarding experience in the world. Gay couples especially, value the ability to have children through the miracle of adoption. Unfortunately, many people doubt the ability of gay couples to parent children and the adoption process is not always an easy one for them.
A groundbreaking study in the UK could change everything, making it easier than ever before for gay and lesbian couples to expand their families. “We know how important it is to find the best possible placement for each and every child in care — and we know that LGBT people often come to adoption or fostering as the first choice for expanding their family, bringing love, real enthusiasm and resourcefulness,” said Helen Donohoe, Director of Public Policy at Action for Children, LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week’s main sponsor.
