Family Focus

One thing we focus on with passion at is family, and the benefit to families of being Caffected couples.  Kids in 'caffected families' can't help but thrive.  A recent article about adoption mentioned the hundreds of displaced children who have found happy, healthy, loving homes with gay couples.  This is a commendable thing, and should be encouraged by everyone.  
Another gratifying piece was about efforts to recognize the right of gays & lesbians to marry in this country.  This, too, is a family issue, and we're encouraged that, eventually, these 'families', too, will be recognized and celebrated for their addition to the feast that is a joyful, mutually-beneficial married family life.  John Lennon said "all you need is love", and we agree.  We appreciate the courageous politicians, religious leaders, community activists and common people linking up for a better understanding for all on this issue.  We're all linked together, one big family, after all, and that's what matters.
