  • My mother is gay and has been since I was 5 years old. I never had a problem growing up and it did not affect the way I live my life as an adult. I am married and have 3 beautiful children. And no, I am not gay! I don't see anything wrong with gay adoption. As long as the parents love the child and give them a happy life, it doesn't matter if the couple is straight or gay.

  • I see nothing wrong with it. If two people love and respect each other and want to open their hearts and homes to a child then I am all for it. There are too many children out there without someone love and care for them forever. My husband's aunt is gay and wanted nothing more than to have children, but she couldn't adopt because of how she loves, it's a shame. You're right, it's about the kids. Good luck with your adoption efforts.

  • Anyone can be a mother. It doesn't matter what kind of plumbing you've got... as long as there's plenty of love.

  • I think its great. I think that as long as the child is in a healthy, loving home... Who can say no to that... Who am I to say what kind of family you should have?

  • Personally I don't believe in the lifestyle, however, I would by far rather see a loving same-sex couple adopt a child and provide a good home, than see abortions or children being tossed around in foster care. The latter two things are far more devastating to me in my views.
