The cultural and legal landscape of America (and the world) is changing. In many states, same-sex couples can adopt children together, while in Kansas, only one unmarried partner can adopt. Thus, there are a number of legal obstacles for families who have adopted in other states. Further, same-sex couples can now legally marry in many states and other countries, but those marriages are not recognized in Kansas. The difficulties that can be faced by these couples are enormous.
