Virginia Governor Says Married Gay Couples Can Adopt Children

Wonderful news out of Virginia! Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is sending out orders to local service divisions making it legal for married gay couples to adopt children in the state.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

McAuliffe’s office announced Friday that it was formally recognizing that same-sex couples can legally adopt.

The U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage in Virginia Monday, prompting several gay couples to get married around the state.

McAuliffe said he hopes the legalization of gay marriage will lead to more children finding loving families.

Congratulations to these Virginia families!
