Colombia's constitutional court has lifted restrictions on same-sex couples adopting children.
Until now, same-sex couples could only adopt a child if it was the offspring of one of the partners.
But in a historic ruling on Wednesday, the court instructed adoption agencies not to discriminate against gay men and lesbians.
It said gay couples could adopt just as heterosexual couples could, as along as all legal requirements were met.
The court reached its ruling in a 6-2 vote after hours of debate.
