NI same-sex adoption rate lowest in UK
Fewer same-sex couples who apply to adopt in Northern Ireland have a child placed with them than LGBT couples in other parts of the UK, figures obtained by BBC News NI suggest.
In 2013, Northern Ireland laws changed to allow same-sex couples to adopt for the first time.
It was the last part of the UK to implement the change.
Figures released show that since the law change in Northern Ireland, 30 same-sex couples have applied to adopt.
I'm sorry that this is long and people might not like it or care to read it. I just wanted to write this somewhere. In the recent days a question started forming for me. Why do people care so little about someone else coming over from an imaginary line? People are trying to escape terrible lives or just try to make their life better. I dare anyone that they wouldn't attempt to do the same. Yet people can just look at them and go no these people came across an imaginary line that we drew and have a slightly different culture and language, so why in the world should we care about them at all. Go on an airplane and fly over the world and try to show me where one country ends and another begins.
