New York City’s child welfare agency wants more gay and lesbian foster parents.

The Administration for Children’s Services is launching a campaign to expand the kinds of families who consider fostering and also to find welcoming homes for children who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, The Wall Street Journal reported.

One of the ads set to roll out this week features an interracial gay couple making dinner with a child with the message, “Be the reason she has hope.”
