Gay foster parent ruling in Key West


In Key West, a family is celebrating a victory in what never should have been a battle in the first place - a Monroe County judge declared Florida’s ban on gay adoptions unconstitutional, paving the way for Wayne Larue Smith’s son to legally be able to call him “Dad.”

But Smith and his partner Daniel Skahen have been their son’s fathers for 7 years. The legal roadblocks stemmed from Florida’s ban gay adoptions, a rule purported to preserve families that, in actuality, only serves to hurt the children who need parents most.

We reported on the initial overturning of the ban last week, before the courts had released Smith’s and Skahen’s names. Since then, the Miami Herald has taken a closer look at the family, including reports on the obvious, have-already-been-stated-and-proven evidence that gay parents are “just as good” as hetero ones.

The new ruling prompted us to revisit the landmark 1997 ruling in New Jersey that set the precedent for allowing gay couples to adopt. While we were snooping around, we found this analysis by religioustolerance.org, a GLBT-inclusive religious organization whose mission is to untangle the truth and doublespeak so frequently employed by those who tout policies purported to preserve the integrity of families, but which actually only serve to keep children homeless. Their report is fascinating, but also sparks unease, when you realize that in a decade…not much has changed. Despite a body of statistical evidence to the contrary, including now 10 years worth of case studies, the same old panicky false arguments against gay adoption are still being employed.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It gets down to select a proper partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
