  • I know this is a spin off of should gays adopt and its funny that so many people don't get it. The point is there is something in many of our lives that make us seem unfit to adopt in the eyes of another. The bottom is and always should be- can we be a good parent and that can only be answered on a case by case basis and not by putting us in groups or labels such as : gay, fat, skinny, ugly, whatever....

  • I have a cousin who adopted her 2 fosterkids. She is very much over weight, but you know what? those kids have loving stable homes, they are always fed and on the go do all sorts of fun things....their bio mom is a homeless drunk and weighs maybe 90 lbs. so is it better for those 2 kids to be on the streets because their mom is skinny? heck no! they are better off with their new mom who is fat but is sober and alot of fun to be with

  • I want to add, they should, but only if they can support healthy eating habits for the children. I think that there are certain things that every parent should be informed about before raising a child.
