Johnson County District Judge Kathleen Sloan removed a 16-month-old child from Kansas Department for Children and Families custody after finding the agency had not acted in the child’s best interest when it took him from lesbian foster parents he had lived with since he was 3 days old and recommended that he be placed with a family that initially had declined to adopt him even though it had adopted his half siblings. DCF Secretary Phyllis Gilmore has repeatedly said the agency doesn’t show preference to heterosexual couples as foster and adoptive parents over gays and lesbians in committed relationships.
