Same Sex Adoption Fight

Jul 18, 2015

  

Since the U.S. Supreme Court marriage ruling, same sex couples in Alabama are seeking to be recognized as parents to the children they are raising.

A judge last week approved one of the first adoptions in the state in the wake of the marriage ruling. 

Tracy Haraway, of Huntsville, gave birth to twin boys fifteen months ago. However her wife, Ashley, was not recognized as a legal parent until the adoption.

Tracy Haraway says the adoption gives her peace of mind that her spouse is a recognized parent and can make legal decisions for their children.

Puppy and kitten season is almost here, and shelters will be overrun with more cute adoptable pets than there are available homes.  You can make a difference!
