Gay couples giving homes to nearly half of Flanders, Belgium's adopted kids
Gay couples are giving homes to almost half of adopted children in the Flanders area of Belgium. The Flemish Center for Adoptions announced today (23 January) in 2012, 14 children went to gay couples and 16 went to straight ones. By law, Belgian mothers are allowed to stop adoptions if they do not approve of the hopeful family. A FCA spokesman said the numbers show the organizations in charge of adoptions are thinking without prejudice.
