LGBT Adoptive Parents Gather for Gala

LGBT Adoptive Parents Gather for Gala

Amid the mimosas and dream items for auction, LGBT parents, intended parents and their supporters gathered for a good cause: the Raise A Child annual jazz brunch at the W Hotel in Hollywood.

Raise A Child has an important mission: to help connect LGBT intended parents with some 400,000 children currently in the foster care system.

There were tales of amazing families formed through adoption, tearful moments, along with celebrity appearances by John Cryer, Alex Kingston and Rita Perlman.

But if you missed the brunch, there are plenty of ways to learn about this amazing organization, starting with our interview of the founder and Executive Director, Rich Valenza, and his own family.

Read the interview here, along with our other amazing family stories and expert interviews.
