San Francisco recruits lesbians and gays to adopt foster kids
The San Francisco Department of Human Services has started a campaign to recruit more gays and lesbians to adopt foster kids, especially teens, who are among the hardest to place.
The agency sees gays and lesbians as an underutilized pool of potential parents.
The campaign is the first of its kind and controversial with religious types.
It comes just two weeks after the evangelical Christian group Focus on the Family began its drive to recruit more Christians as adoptive parents to keep foster children away from homosexual parents.
