This includes discrimination targeting prospective adoptive or foster parents and discrimination aimed at the child/children involved based solely on their sexual orientation, gender identity, or, in the case of prospective parents, their marital status. 

This bill was introduced in the House on 5/25/21 by Rep. Danny Davis and in the Senate on 05/26/2021 by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).
