Same-sex couples will be able to adopt from now on without any prejudice since a family court and the Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI) – which is in charge of the care of abandoned minors – supported the adoption of a 16-year-old adolescent by an equality marriage. The historic decision of June 15 by the Juzgado de San José, validates for the first time in Costa Rica the adoption of a minor by a ‘familia homoparental’ (LGBT parenting). This, considering that the well-being of the young person is the most important thing and not the sexual preference of the couple. “In the home of don… and don…, (the minor) has found the family he had always dreamed of and that was denied him since he was a child of just four years old, when he was institutionalized until life took him to meet the parents who were already waiting for him,” said the resolution of Judge Nelda Jiménez. The decision clarified that there are no differences between the adoption made up of a homosexual couple, and that of a heterosexual couple, since the legal and formal requirements are exactly the same.
