The continued use of traditional gender identifiers in reference to parenting is a constant reminder to the LGBTQ community of being disenfranchised. These gender identifiers imply that the ideal parents to adopt a child are a mother and/or father. But what if there are two mothers? Or two fathers?
Good parents are good parents…. The standard of a parent should not be held within the confines of the traditional gender identifiers.
The change to a gender neutral adoption form would be a symbolic representation in the right direction for where we need to be to achieve fairness in adoption practices and policies.
Please show your support by signing this petition to be presented to Kansas State Representatives with hopes of influencing change.
