“More than 100,000 foster children woke up this morning ready to join loving families. Far too many will go to sleep tonight still waiting. And yet, in 31 states, deserving LGBT families are blocked from providing these children with a caring home.
That is why Kirsten has sponsored the Every Child Deserves a Family Act of 2013 to ban discrimination against adoptive parents based on gender identity, marital status or sexual orientation. The bill would also prevent states from blocking the adoption of LGBT children.
By eliminating barriers for loving LGBT families, we can greatly reduce the number of children without a home of their own. Every child deserves the opportunity to join a caring family.”
