Review for Equality Florida, Inc., St. Petersburg, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I believe in the mission of this non-profit. About 15 years ago, I had two gay friends who were foster parents to two young boys. These boys had been tossed from foster home to foster home. No one wanted them because they were biracial, had emotional and physical handicaps, and were hard to handle. At the time, the state of Florida would not let these men adopt the children together, only one of them were allowed to adopt the kids. After about a year of living with these two guys (one a teacher, the other a lawyer) these two children thrived! Their lives had completely turned around! Today these two children are grown men. One became a Marine, the other is in college doing great. Now that the adoption laws in Florida allow gay adoption, thanks to Equality Florida, it will save so many children from being lost in the system! Please contribute to this very worthy non-profit. Thank you!
