An Arizona same-sex couple is legally married but was required to file adoption and foster parent applications separately.
However, now Governor Doug Ducey has made it legal for same-sex couples in Arizona to adopt and to foster children as a couple. “We’ve been clear and we’ve been consistent—we want to be pro-adoption,” Ducey said Thursday. “There’s 17,000 kids that are in the care of the state. I want to see them in loving homes under the legal structure.”
And so now Meg and Kelly, as well as other same-sex couples in Arizona, have started their paperwork again, this time as a couple rather than as individuals.
