SACRAMENTO, August 5, 2003 ( – The California Supreme Court has upheld the thousands of adoptions by homosexuals, ruling that an alleged 20,000 existing homosexual adoptions and the process itself are legal.  The 6-1 ruling is based on a state law allowing second-parent adoptions, in which a birth parent keeps a child while also agreeing to have it adopted by a second parent. A dissenting judge, Justice Janice Rogers Brown, said the ruling “trivializes family bonds,” and that second-parent adoptions should be reserved for couples in a legal (i.e. heterosexual) relationship.  For local coverage:
