Two gay men have become the first same-sex couple in Jersey to be approved to adopt children.

Fostering and Adoption Jersey, which recruits, assesses and supports carers, said that the couple had great potential parenting skills, as well as the support of their family and friends.

The couple are in their 30s. Like many other parents who have successfully been through the selection process, they are now waiting for a suitable child to adopt.
