Same-sex couples in Maine can now co-adopt children, according to a ruling from the highest court in that state. From 365gay:

"A joint adoption assures that in the event of either adoptive parent's death, the children's continued relationship with the surviving parent is fixed and certain," the Court said in its written decision.

"A joint adoption also enables the children to be eligible for a variety of public and private benefits...Most importantly, a joint adoption affords the adopted children the love, nurturing, and support of not one, but two parents."

There ya go.
