A lesbian in Taiwan who was told that she could not adopt the children she parents with her partner because it would have a "negative impact" on them will appeal the landmark case, she said Friday.The court ruled against the adoption in February, citing potential "negative impact" on the children, despite an evaluation from a child welfare group finding Wang fit as an adoptive parent.Taiwan holds one of Asia's biggest annual gay pride parades and its Cabinet drafted a bill in 2003 to legalize same-sex marriages and recognise the rights of homosexual couples to adopt children -- the first in Asia to do so.
