A lesbian couple is trying to fix an injustice by filing a lawsuit against Michigan's ban on adoption by unmarried couples.
April DeBoer, with two adopted children, and Jayne Rowse, (rightfully) say the ban violates their civil rights.
DeBoer said in the statement,
"Jayne and I love our children as deeply as any other parent loves their kids. We just want our children to have the same protections all other children have so that our kids know they can never be taken from either of us."
This lawsuit isn't asking for special treatment, they're asking only to be treated as equals!
April and Jayne's children were born to biological parents who couldn't care for them. Why should a couple that's willing to love and care for these children not have the full support of the law??
We hope that people can see past their hang ups on same-sex couples, to see the children that could benefit from having right the family they deserve.
