— The Human Rights Campaign again awarded its Seal of Recognition to Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc., an adoption placement agency in Rye Brook, N.Y.

The seal means Forever Families is welcoming, affirming and supportive of LGBT families, and has once again demonstrated skill and competency in 10 key areas of best practice.

Forever Families originally received the seal in November 2011 during National Adoption Day at Westchester County Family Court, with the Honorable Judge Kathie E. Davidson presiding. National Adoption Day is recognized throughout the United States, when courts open their doors to finalize the adoptions of thousands of children. Judge Davidson has been recognizing and finalizing same-sex adoptions for many years.

The agency's executive director, Joy S. Goldstein, said the seal means "we are not only supporting the LGBT community, but are standing up for ethical practice by removing barriers to LGBT adults who dream of becoming parents and to children in need of a safe, permanent and loving family.”

Forever Families welcomes all families regardless of race, religion, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, age, nationality or disability.

The All Children–All Families initiative, launched in 2007, promotes policies and practices that welcome LGBT foster and adoptive parents. The program seeks to enhance LGBT cultural competence among child welfare professionals and educate LGBT people about opportunities to become foster or adoptive parents for waiting children.
