I have just written an article for Alice Magazine about gay couples who adopt children. It will be published in the September or October issue so keep an eye out for it. When doing my research for the article, I was saddened to find that the biggest hurdle was certain social workers judgement. Many couples reported that the first enquiries they made regarding gay adoption were completely shot down as a result of them being in a same-sex partnership. The other HUGE theme that came through was members of the public feeling that they have a right to ask very insensitive questions about the multi racial family in front of small children. Come one people….surely we are past all this stuff now? There must be bigger things to complain about than gay adoption?
