Gay adoption in America
My journalism school classmate Clay Wirestone has a fantastic series at the Concord Monitor, describing the stories and struggles of gay and lesbian parents as they adopt and raise children. It starts with the story of his own adoption, with his husband Max, of their now 2-year-old son Baxter
. Other entries in the series examine how the legal landscape of gay parenting has changed in the last 20 years
; the issues of language, word choice, and gender
that GLBT families deal with; and the diverse stories
of other families.
