Prop 8 Ruled Unconstitutional

by The Next Family August 04, 2010

The Next Family would like to announce that Prop 8 has been overturned.  We have Tracy Thomas on the scene taking pictures for an upcoming photo essay.

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
