Little Victories fo Gay Adoption

In this article, John Caldwell says that even though some states are trying to pass laws to ban same sex marriage, same sex adoption is becoming more recognized. In Mississippi a ruling was made in favor of two lesbian moms. The ruling said the state would recognize the adoption even thought it didn't recognize same sex relationships. Experts point out that this case strenghtened the rights of gay parents everywhere. There are no states that currently ban same sex adoption because the passing of such a law would distrupt the lives of so many children. The needs of children are at stake, therefore states are apt to recognize the rights of gay parents who have legal custody of their children. States cannot afford to not recognize gay people's right to adopt.
