C.A.S.E. Training Specialist Tony Hynes, a former foster youth and adoptee, was adopted by a same sex couple in the mid 1990’s. He writes about his experiences growing up as both an interracial adoptee and as a child growing up in a same sex headed household in his memoir “The Son With Two Moms.” Tony was taken in at the age of three by Mary Hynes and Janet Simons, after being separated from his mother, who suffered from schizophrenia. After that time, he was shuffled in and out of his grandmothers home before being placed in an orphanage, where he remained for one year. After a tumultuous court battle, he went home with the only two women brave enough to raise me. However, neither he nor his guardians could have imagined the trials awaiting their family after the proceedings ended.
