Back in June, we were VERY pleased to hear that gay adoptions were increasing in the U.S., according to census numbers.
Now, we're thrilled to announce that an analysis of recent population trends indicates that "numbers of gays and lesbians adopting children has NEARLY TRIPLED in the past decade!"
Here's what Miami attorney Elizabeth Schwartz, who's coordinated 100+ gay adoptions in the past year, had to say about it:
"It's a stratospheric increase. It's like going from zero to 60. I think many really dreamed of doing this but it wasn't something they ever thought would become a reality."
Absolutely wonderful! As we said back in June, let's keep those numbers going up, and let's keep providing children with loving and caring families!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
