A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Every day we strive to push our state closer to living our motto of Equality Before the Law. This work changes our state for the better and leaves a lasting impact on our clients’ lives. Look no further than a happy northeast Nebraska family. In 2020, Kelly and Maria expected to become legal parents of Yasmin, a child they have raised since birth. Imagine their shock when a county judge told them incorrectly that Nebraska state adoption law does not permit a “wife and wife” to adopt. Eventually, and with the help of the ACLU of Nebraska, the Nebraska Supreme Court heard their case. Nebraskans can take heart that the high court ruled unanimously in the couple’s favor. Today Yasmin has a permanent, loving home with two devoted and nurturing parents.
