Family Equality Council's Executive Director, Gabriel Blau, sits down with Al Jazeera to talk about the hurdles  LGBT couples face when looking to adopt in the United States.  Blau explains that adoption rights for same-sex couples not only change state by state, but can also change within state borders.  

As part of the organization's Allies for Adoption Campaign, Family Equality is trying to raise awareness for The Every Child Deserves a Family Act, which has been introduced into Congress and would provide same-sex couples the right to adopt.  Blau explains the Act as a piece of common sense legislation aimed at providing children with homes.
