Ok I was reading about the importance of fatherhood on another post and I came think ok yes mothers are important and fathers are important but if everyone thinks then what about the children that will only have two fathers? And two mothers? I believe in 2013 " family" has whole different dynamic. No one knows yet how these children are going to turn out because it is so new in our society and the statistics are not available yet. I think family is a unit of people that love you and help you grow into a productive member of society and as long you are happy and have support it does not matter who is raising you.
I was raised by two parents and grandparents. I had extended family raise me and it was fantastic. A good loving family is what is important.

My daughter and her partner are raising a newborn they plan to adopt, and she is showered with attention and love 24/7 if not by them by the rest of the family. A child only needs to be nurtured to thrive...the gender of the one nurturing does not matter. And FYI there are studies out there on children being raised by gay parents, and the conclusion was they come out very stable and no different than the traditional family.
