Belgian gays can now adopt!

Senate just voted, and the law passed with only one vote mor in favor of it, so it's official. From now on, belgian gay couples can adopt!!!

Let's cheer


This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Congrats, hon! Where I live, it's still illegal, by statute!

In theory. In practice it won't work.

Don't forget that although that law was voted, conditions allowing adoption on the other hand were made much more severe...so...
And the next prime minister will most probably be a christian democrat.

Great! Hadn't heared yet. I don't think though many gay couples will be able to adopt "strange" children, because the procedure is so strict, and "normal" couples will most likely get preference.
But still it's very important for gay/lesbian couples that the partner can adopt the natural child of the other. So if anything happens, the kid can't be taken away by family, or in case of divorce, one cannot deny the other to see the child.

Bit of a step for Belgian hets, too

At last, this should have been allowed from the start.
