The most up-to-date adoption news

Florida releases ban on gay adoption

Happy New Year to all my readers! I am back in the swing of things and will continue to post for 2009. I have big plans for 2009 and hope to bring you more information as well as recommend some wonderful adoption agencies. If you have any thoughts, ideas or questions place contact me. I am more than happy to talk! 

Now on to the news:

Florida was the only state that prohibited a gay individual from adopting a child (other states might  prohibit same sex couples from adopting, but not an individual).
