Why Marriage Equality Matters to Same-Sex Adoptive Parents
May 20, 2015
Last month my husband Brad and I joined thousands of people outside the Supreme Court in Washington to show our support for marriage equality.
It was the latest stop in a long journey for us that has brought us to where we are today in our adoption journey.
When the Supreme Court comes down with its ruling at the end of June it is bound to be a landmark decision for the entire country.
A decision that we hope opens the door for all same-sex couples to be treated as any heterosexual couple would be, no matter what state they reside in.
As Brad and I embarked on our open adoption journey just over one year ago, marriage equality and equality as a whole continue to be huge discussion points in our house and will continue as we grow our family.
We want our child to grow up treating everyone equal, regardless of age, sex, religion, sexual orientation or even favorite food.
Four thirty in the morning came extremely early, but our excitement for the day quickly overshadowed any sleepiness we may have been showing.
A short Metro ride into DC later, we were walking toward the Supreme Court, hand in hand, smiling from ear to ear. We didn’t know what to expect.
