One year ago today, when President Obama proclaimed November National Adoption Month, he reaffirmed his commitment to equality for all families, including those with two moms or two dads:
"During National Adoption Month, we celebrate the acts of compassion and love that unite children with adoptive families, and we rededicate ourselves to the essential task of providing all children with the comfort and safety of a permanent home… With so many children waiting for loving homes, it is important to ensure that all qualified caregivers are given the opportunity to serve as adoptive parents, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or marital status." – President Obama
From putting in place measures to protect LGBT Americans from housing discrimination to extending hospital visitation rights to same-sex partners, the proclamation was one of many ways in which President Obama has used his first term fighting to ensure that same-sex couples have the opportunity to form strong, loving families like everyone else.
