Susanna and her partner Gabriele hope to one day be allowed to legally adopt their two children, which so far is not possible in Germany and is currently being hotly debated by politicians. The Bundesrat, Germany's second house of parliament, is today debating whether gay couples in a legal partnership should be allowed the same full rights as heterosexual married couples.
