LGBTQ kids need positive support in their lives, so you should consider becoming a mentor. Maybe an uncle or grandfather. Possibly even today. This illustration proves a point: Is there an adoption registration for disowned gay youth? Although gays were allowed to be foster parents, they couldn't adopt, which made some gay foster parents reluctant to reveal their sexual orientation, Toal said. The form even asks them to describe their clothing and identifying marks all in an effort to really make the teens stop and think about risk and the decisions they make.
You make a good point:
We want more accepting foster homes. Latino Voices. They then plan to link applicants with the gay children who come to coalition organizations seeking help and who are eligible for foster care.
Our job is to connect or help to re-connect these youth to the permanent families they so need.
