The LGBT community in Colombia claimed a huge victory after the constitutional court ruled same-sex adoption legal with a vote of six to two, in spite of the opposition by conservative leaders. This is great news for the 4,850 kids waiting to be adopted in state-run institutions.

“A person’s sexual orientation or gender are not in and of themselves indicative of a lack of moral, physical or mental suitability to adopt,” said Maria Victoria Calle Correa, the president of the court.

The decision comes after same-sex adoption became legal if at least one partner was a biological parent. However, marriage equality  is yet to be legalized.

Colombia now joins Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and French Guinea in allowing same-sex adoption.
