O, Flower of Scotland…

Beautiful Scotland, home of my dear Mr. Shakes, not to mention my own clan from three generations back, is legalizing gay adoptions.
Scotland is set to allow same-sex couples to adopt children, according to a review of adoption legislation to be announced today.

Following similar changes in English and Welsh law, Scotland may grant adoption rights to lesbian and gay couples within a few months.


Deputy Education Minister Euan Robson will unveil the changes, which will also reduce delays in the adoption process.
Very exciting news. Way to go, Scotland! In fact, good on ya, the whole of Britain, for caring about families of all stripes. All I can say is that I hope we join you someday.
