Slovenia’s first same-sex second-parent adoption has been approved by the Ministry of Labor, Family and Social Affairs, according to Ljubljana’s SKUC-LL, the Students’ Cultural Center Lesbian Section.
A new Family Code adopted in June allows a same-sex partner to adopt a partner’s biological child.
The ministry stepped in, SKUC-LL said, after the adoption was denied by the Center for Social Work.
