Recap: Adoption & LGBTQ Families Twitter Chat

November is National Adoption Month. Yesterday, Family Equality Council joined Moms Rising, along with PFLAG and Children’s Action Network during Moms Rising’s weekly #WellnessWed chat to discuss current barriers preventing prospective parents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer from serving as foster or adoptive parents in certain states. Our message was clear: More prospective parents means a chance for every child to have a safe, stable, loving home. We shared a lot of great information that you or someone you know may find helpful in the journey to parenthood.

During the chat, we introduced our Every Child Deserves a Family Campaign. Join Family Equality Council in educating our communities about how removing existing barriers will help every child find the safe, loving and welcoming family they deserve.
