Annotation # 2

Gay families go mainstream; Reaction to a ruling in favor of gay adoption suggests that same-sex parents are winning hearts and minds. But is it too soon to delare victory?

In this article, the supreme court in Pennsylvania ruled that gay men and lesbians can adopt their partners' children. Only eight states and the Distict of Columbia allow this. The trend is turning in favor of gay families. Gays and lesbians have made incredible progress this year. People are starting to believe what the judge in Peensylvania said-"it's absurd to deny kids a loving home because both parents happen to be on the same sex. This decision is a complete victory for hundreds of gay and lesbian families.
