There are many children who are aging out while languishing in foster care that very few heteros are adopting because of the emotional scars and special needs that come with adopting these children. Thankfully, there are decent homosexual couples stepping up to the plate left empty by the heteros. Is it the best thing for them? No. Every child deserves a mommy AND a daddy. But with so few (heteros) making themselves available, the next best thing is a homosexual couple or a single mother or father. Before condemming our gay brothers and sisters (they’re children of God, too, remember?) for getting “in the same line” to adopt children, perhaps we should be asking why so many straight couples are not getting in line in the first place? BTW, I’m a mother of 4 special needs children that I adopted through foster care and have been married to my dear husband for over 20 years. I’ve been a foster parent for 15. Pretty much have seen it all. The gay couples I have worked with are very nice people who love thier adopted children and have given them a stable home. Optimal? No. Stable and loving? Yes.
Very well said, and my congratulations to you both for having the will and the faith to do what you have done.
rscully and wee willie winkie seem to be tag teaming each other pushing the homo agenda; specifically how homosexuals are such great parents and Romney is so right to want homosexuals to adopt little children.
No that isn't quite correct and I'm calling your hand on it. Most kids in foster care CAN NOT BE ADOPTED BECAUSE JUDGE LIBERAL AND THE LIBERAL CPS WILL NOT PUSH TO TERMINATE PARENTAL RIGHTS IN BAD ABUSE CASES. They age in foster care solely because of that reason. Parents who are abusers play the system for years on end. That is the real problem and you are falling for the Liberal Lie hook line and sinker.

You means like the women I saw who basically sat on their big F.A.'s while the kids served them? They even bragged in class the kids did their work for them.
Kids who have been taken into the state foster care system have suffered severe emotional trauma. The last thing they need is Gays wanting too play house at their expense. If a couple wants to be gay so be it. Leave the kids out of it. Most kids who end up gay are RECRUITED into the lifestyle by an adult. IOW molested and told being gay is great. Some have been sexually assaulted once, twice, a dozen times or more by and adult they trusted and you want another social experiment? I'll fight that tooth and nail.
I've seen decent couples some were professionals who could help the kids sitting in classes wanting to adopt kids and are told the odds of it happening are low inside the state system because Reunification is the sole agenda of CPS and the courts. They end up having to go to private agencies. No the Liberals don't care how many times they must remove kids from their abusive parents. You ignore the fact as qwell most CPS departments are ran by the ultra liberals. Yes of course they believe gay is great. They also believe mother who let boyfriends rape their daughters are poor confused victims. I've had enough.
There are many straight couples wanting too adopt and you know it.
