Adoption and Fostering Rights
A reality in life is that children often fall into a condition in which there is not a natural, obvious heir to their care. When capable, willing and qualified families and individuals are opening their homes to provide the care needed for these children, no prejudice should be imposed which denies the ability to provide necessary support to the youngest members of our society.
Often the best interests of a child are not the primary consideration when compassionate families step forward. Families which do not meet a preconceived definition are often denied the opportunity to fill this need by law or practice. This is never in the best interests of our society or of the children. Therefore we oppose any rule or guideline which bars the application of this simple standard to everyone.
