OK, about 6 weeks ago there was a little boy who we wanted to adopt and we were passed up- from our understanding- it was because we're gay. This was told to us through so many words. Well, that adoption fell through at the last minute and he is now available again. Now adoptions have to go to a committee, a panel of 5-8 people who vote on the welfare of the child rather than just the childs social worker makng the decision. This means we have a better chance. Wish us luck!!
