Gay Adoption

Gay Couple Waits for 'The Call' in Powerful New Video About LGBT Adoption Rights: WATCH

Screen Shot 2013-11-11 at 4.38.50 PM

A powerful video on the importance of breaking down the barriers that many LGBT couples face on the path to becoming adoptive parents.

There are currently 400,000 young people in foster care waiting for a home and only 19 states and D.C. permit same-sex couples to jointly adopt. Additionally, only 6 states explicitly ban discrimination based on sexual orientation in foster care adoption.

  5. That's cute.

    But children are hideous.

    I'd like to take a moment to thank evolution (not 'god' because that's fake) for allowing same sex couples little chance of spawning unless they make a deliberate effort to do so.

    Childlessness is a wonderful thing.

    And in a world with massive overpopulation more childless people, and access to instant abortion on demand is the future.

  8. I like the video. Was it just me or did it seems like everything in the house including the clothing of the couple was color and texture coordinated with the feel of a nice plush marina wool sweater?

  10. I'll admit, I teared up a little. OK, a lot. I was there with my sister and her partner when they got the official letter telling them their adoption was final. After years of hope and an empty (and quite nice) nursery that they kept up for months and years out of pure hope. And the adoption, that had to go through months of legal process, giving the birth parents every possible chance to change their minds. They didn't.

    Now, I have the coolest nephew in the entire universe. And am so glad I was able to be there for that moment, one not unlike this video. Jeez, I'm tearing up just writing this! Very nice video - thanks for sharing! Here's hoping more kids can find happiness in a loving home!
