CWN Editor's Note: The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has agreed to pay $550,000 to St. Vincent Catholic Charities in Lansing. In 2019, the state had threatened to close adoption agencies that did not place children with same-sex couples.

“The teaching of the Catholic Church and, hence, the adoption policy of St. Vincent is rooted in both faith and reason: that children, on the whole, do best in life when they grow up with a mom and dad who are married to each other,” said Rich Budd, Director of Marriage and Family Life for the Diocese of Lansing.
