Connecticut wants LGBT families to adopt children

Written by 

LGBTQ family

 

As we had seen a few days ago, both Oklahoma and Kansas approved laws allowing adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBT families. Connecticut, for its part, has decided to welcome LGBT parents who want to adopt or foster a child.

The Connecticut Department of Children and Families has launched an outreach campaign and will begin working with LGBT organizations and community centers to encourage people to apply to become adoptive or foster parents, according to The Associated Press.

Governor Dannel Malloy even tweeted, “We just have to get this word out. We have to get more of our children placed with our families in our state.

"On any given day in our state, over 4,000 children are living in foster care. We want to spread the message that ALL families are valued as potential foster and adoptive families."

The decisions of Oklahoma and Kansas could dissuade same-sex couples from adopting or fostering children. Don't let this deprive you of the happiness of being parents!

New York and San Francisco launched similar efforts to show LGBT parents that they are welcome in adoption agencies.
