Social Workers Favor Gay Couples over Married Couples?


In a New York Times report that gay adoption is generally on the rise, this story sticks out:

"Matt and Ray Lees, a couple in Worthington, Ohio, said they were selected as parents for a 7-month-old, ahead of several heterosexual couples, in part because they had successfully adopted two older children."

So a couple with two older children who could not legally jointly adopt were favored by social workers for a 7 month old baby, over a childless married mom and dad in Ohio?
