    “It costs $3,000 a month to be a queer parent in New York State.”

    Minor correction: It costs them $3000 THIS month, not ‘a’ month, which implies it costs them $3000 every month. I think a one-time adoption cost of $3000 is bad enough, but I was familiar with that. $3000 every month would be impossible for a all but the super wealthy.

    Thanks for all your great links and posts!
