History has just been made in South Australia, following Shaun’s 27,000 strong Change.org petition.

Gay couples can now adopt children, following a three year campaign where Shaun Douglas-Galley and his husband shared their story about their relationship and their young children.

The legislation passed SA’s upper house on Wednesday, 13 votes to four.

Shaun said: “[By doing this], South Australia acknowledges through its Adoption Act that sexual orientation has no bearing on ones ability to parent, to educate and to love children.”
