Transcription: 
It’s important that children have the widest array of people who are available to adopt them for a number of reasons. There are over 100 thousand children today in the foster care system, freed for adoption but still lingering in care. The goal is to try to make available as many suitable individuals as possible. Gay and lesbian parents should be allowed to be assessed, to be evaluated like all other parents and if found suitable, to be able to adopt children like their heterosexual counterparts. Gay and lesbian parents make great parents – the research supports it, my clinical experience supports it.
