Today (Feb. 17) is a historic day for South Australian same-sex couples who have a willing to make their families full through adoption. From now they have such an option. The bill which allowed to provide changes to the adoption rules in order to make it possible for gay and lesbian couples to adopt children. It is one of the several ways to improve the life of the LGBT community in the region. The day will be marked by Child Development Minister Susan Close, who will meet with same-sex couples and their children at Parliament House.Following a narrow parliamentary vote, the Australian territory of Queensland also last year voted to allow same-sex couples to adopt children. It comes as LGBT activists are still fighting for same-sex marriage rights in the country, with the government still pledging to hold a public vote on the issue rather than deciding it in parliament.
