Phyllis Gilmore, secretary of the Kansas Department for Children and Families, which oversees the state’s foster care program, on Tuesday told the Special Committee on Foster Care Adequacy that she’s trying to recruit more foster parents and wants children to be able to choose where to go. She said that currently nothing restricts married same-sex couples and single gays and lesbians from serving as foster parents in Kansas. The department has no specific policy regarding foster care and same-sex couples.
