Adoption Faciliators in Demand

Governor Mitt Romney is planning to file what he calls a "very narrow" bill to exempt Catholic Charities from complying with the state's discrimination laws, so that they can deny same-sex couples the right to adopt children through the agency. This after Catholic Charities in Boston decided to stop facilitating adoptions. Many private agencies are gearing up handle an increase in adoptions, as well as related services such as the training of parents who hope to adopt. And Catholic Charities outside of Boston are having their policies scrutinized.
