Are Some Social Workers A Little Too Anxious to Affirm Novel Family Forms?


A judge in Australia thinks maybe so:

A six-year-old boy in Australia was removed from his lesbian foster parents after they posted a photo of him dressed as a girl onto Facebook, a Supreme Court judgment revealed last month.

One of the women is reportedly seeking to undergo a ‘sex change’, while the other is hoping to bear a child through artificial reproduction.

... The boy’s mother had been trying to regain custody, but the country’s Supreme Court rejected her plea.  Dubbed ‘Campbell’ by the New South Wales Children’s Court, the boy was removed from his parents along with four stepbrothers and two stepsisters in 2006 because of complaints about physical and mental abuse.

He and his 12-year-old sister were placed with the lesbian couple in 2009, and he has now been placed with new foster parents who have said they hope to adopt him. -- LifeSiteNews
