LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) A Kentucky judge has finalized the adoption of a 28-year-old man by a woman who was legally married to his mother in Massachusetts, the first step-parent adoption by a member of a same-sex couple in Fayette County and possibly the state following a federal court ruling.

Why would a 28 year-old man need to be adopted?
Can I ask a stupid question? How do you adopt a 28 year old? He’s legally an adult. How is this legal or permissibile in the first place, aside from the homosexual angle???
It’s a sick, sick, sick world.
His mom is a lesbian and a married one at that.
Odds are that the adoptee is gay or has some other malfunction.
America 2014... the deviant freak-show continues.
Obamacare Phase II ?
There was a bizarre case of two elderly "gay" men in Pennsylvania who were trying to work out some kind of deal like this. One of them was in his 80s and his "partner" was in his late 60s. They wanted to be considered spouses for some kind of tax/inheritance purposes. Pennsylvania law didn't allow them to be married, so they tried to get around the law by having the 80+ year-old guy adopt the guy in his 60s.
A Pennsylvania court ruled that the older one couldn't legally adopt the younger one because the father of the younger one was still alive. So -- get this -- they got around that little problem by having the guy in his 60s adopt his older "partner."
If you're going to live in a freak-show, it might as well be an entertaining one.
My friend adopted his step daughter when she was an adult.
The sperm donor was a terrible drunk and the girl felt it was very important that the guy who actually helped her mother raise her become her legal parent. It was largely symbolic but the girl felt very strongly about it.
“How is this legal or permissibile in the first place, aside from the homosexual angle???”
I’d imagine it’s legal because it assures inheritance of property and (in English law) titles. But it’s being used to expand “rights” that do not exist. (Only, now they do.) The LGB lobby is very clever.
There must be other creative ways around taxes/inheritance tax without using “adoption.”
For example: Why couldn’t one guy simply write the other guy into his will? Or why couldn’t they just add each other’s names to each other’s accounts and investments?
She prolly don’t know that Obamacare kicks kids off parents insurance at 26 years old.
I don't pretend to know all the details of this, but it is not unusual for people to come across situations like this in financial/estate planning.
Hey that’s awesome for a bunch of stupid, useless, meaningless ****ing bullsh*t.
Adopt? Why not just marry him? Who’s to say that three can’t be married?
A large part of the gay marriage push involves legal status regarding inheritance, That is probably the reason for the case cited.
It’s about forced heirship.
He's a little slow.
