Yesterday, HRC’s All Children – All Families initiative welcomed our newest Leader agency: Friends in Adoption headquartered in Poultney, VT.

As we previously reported, All Children – All Families raised the bar for our participants in late 2013 and Friends in Adoption is one of the first agencies to meet our expanded Benchmarks and become a Leader in Supporting & Serving LGBT Families.

While it was officially awarded the Seal of Recognition yesterday, Friends in Adoption is certainly not new to this work! The agency was founded in 1982 and, as they explain in their press release, the agency “was one of the pioneer agencies in welcoming all families to adoption and from its early years has promoted adoption by qualified adoptive parents regardless of their sexual orientation.” Check out some of the beautiful families they’ve served over the years!

Join us in congratulating the staff at Friends in Adoption for all their hard work throughout the All Children – All Families participation process and their commitment to LGBT-inclusion and providing quality services to all families!
