Gay adoption: New York leads way, but Gillibrand pushing for national reform

Gay adoption: New York leads way, but Gillibrand pushing for national reform:



"New York's junior senator is pushing federal legislation to lift the ban on gay couples and individuals adopting children.

Between New York's same-sex marriage act and the repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, the momentum is there for the needed reform, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said.

"This legislation would open thousands of new foster and adoptive homes to children ensuring they are raised in loving families," Gillibrand said of her "Every Child Deserves a Family Act.""
