Today, the senate voted to pass a civil unions bill here in Hawaii. That's exciting, and hopefully it won't get filed away like it did last year. It's now going to the House where we're hoping for a veto proof majority. *fingers crossed that our Fraggle gov. doesn't get the chance to veto*
So if this bill does pass, and DP and I do a civil union, will that make the 2nd parent adoption process easier? Hawaii doesn't have any laws regarding 2nd parent adoption. There have been some Honolulu courts that have granted them, so I guess we'd have to try to find a "friendly" judge. I'm so cautious to begin the process, not knowing what to expect.
Send out the positive energy toward Hawaii!! Please let these representatives vote for fairness! (P.S. Check out our gov. doesn't she look like Loki from Fraggle Rock?!)
