Yes. really. No, there is no hidden reason. Everyone agrees it's because the couple is gay. http://www.ksl.com/?sid=37325894&ni...y-couples-custody&fm=home_page&s_cid=topstory A juvenile court judge has ordered the removal of a foster child from a lesbian couple because they are gay, according to Utah's Division of Child and Family Services. The two women, April Hoagland and Beckie Peirce, were in court for a routine hearing Tuesday when 7th District Juvenile Judge Scott Johansen announced he was ordering that the 1-year-old girl they have been caring for over the past three months be removed from their home within a week, DCFS director Brent Platt said Wednesday. According to the judge, the child would be better off with a heterosexual couple. "That's what is so unique about this situation. There weren't any concerns about the family and no concerns about the placement, it sounds like he has concerns overall with same-sex couples being foster parents," Platt said.
