Thanks so much for the encouragement, Jo Alex! You really nail it when you point out that it’s the children who suffer. Even the LGBTQ press often fails to emphasize that poing. Like today. Tennessee is debating a measure that would allow state-funded adoption agencies to bar LGBTQ families from being certified. But I haven’t yet read one news report that mentions how this affects the kids who lose the chance to find permanent families.
