Equality for all. Kids that are in orphanages rarely get adopted and it's harder for them to get a family and home the older they get since most couples want babies, not older children. What's the difference if it's a gay or lesbian or straight couple trying to adopt kids into LOVING homes? Just ask a kid who's never had a family if it matters to them.
An Edwardian ruby and diamond ring, circa 1910. The ring belonged to the novelist, poet and gardener, Vita Sackville-West, who is best remembered for her unorthodox marriage to the writer and diplomat Sir Harold Nicolson, her affair with Virginia Woolf during the 1920s and for creating some of the most admired and influential English gardens of the 20th century. What a beautiful way to set marquise stones.
