NBC station in Washington reports on adoption by same-sex couples in the "Wednesday's Child" series
Today, NBC Washington (or NBC4) aired an episode of “Wednesday’s Child” that showed a teenage boy being adopted by what appeared to be a male couple. The broadcast did not say the couple was gay or legally married. Apparently it lives in Washington DC. However, this is the first time I’ve personally seen an adoption by a same-sex couple on the segment, which usually airs on Wednesday mornings before the noon hour. The teen appeared to be well-adjusted and doing well in school.
In Minneapolis, before I left in 2003, there was a campaign to encourage singles to adopt, even with bu stop ads.
