Italy moves towards same-sex civil unions and gay step-child adoptions.

First comes amore

Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi expects same-sex unions to be legalized in May. While it’s not marriage, it’s certainly a huge step for the Vatican-influenced country. The country seems ready for the change. In a controversial move, Rome’s mayor will perform a mass civil union ceremony for both straight and gay couples this May.

Major talks are also underway in both Houses of Parliament regarding legalizing same-sex adoption as long as one of the partners in a gay couple is the child’s biological parent. Hopefully, this eventually leads the way for our Italian surrogacy clients to freely and openly return home with both names on the birth certificate.

Una grande festa di amore e dei bambini!
