    What is your opinion about adoption by gay couples? (please elaborate)

    As an adopted child, I would very much like to know how the world sees adoption by gay couples. I will not state my opinion until the right time, mostly because I don't want to influence the responses. Hope you take the time to answer this question because I believe it is an important subject to be discussed in modern day society.

    whatever gender a person choice to have, they have equal rights to dream of something they are passionate about like becoming a parents..no matter who we are, we have all the rights to be a mom or dad to our children..whether they are our biological children or they are born out of our heart..there is nothing wrong about gay couple adopting children..cos one's gender doesn't make them less as a person and as a"parents"..as long as they are good example and influence in their children's life..i observe that gay parents are very loving and caring to their adoptive children..and their children grow up to be just fine and good individuals..and there  are children of heterosexual couple who are bad at parenting their children and they grow up to be a nuisance of this society lols hahaha...ANA you are very blessed to have an adoptive parents specially if they love you so much!!!..and please do love them back!!!..being an adopted child doesn't make you less as a person..but rather it makes you so special that your parents choice you to be their child!!! ..smile..being a "GOOD PARENT" is not base on one's gender..rather it comes in the heart and soul!!  tc and be good!!! smile

    I think gay couples should be allowed to adopt children and get married and everything else.Sexual orientation has nothing to do with good parenting.I would be more concerned with a single parent before I would a gay couple.

    I have to say I am very happy to know your opinion. As you may image I am fully in favour of gay couples adopting. all that matters is that they have love to give.. and education.. and everything a child needs. I was blessed to have such wonderfull parents. My mother is an incredible woman and my father was and still is my inspiration. Regardless of the gender of the parents... all a child really needs is a good environment and loving parents.  I believe that people who put religious issues and so on as a "reason" to oppose gay couples adopting, are absolutely wrong and ignorant and they forget what really matters.. THE CHILDREN. Please allow gay couple to adopt and watch as the number of children in orfanages decreases. This would be amazing. Every child with a home and a family. I am very very glad to have such responses from you. Thank you so much.

    I know several lesbian couples who adopted kids and also single lesbians who adopted kids. The lesbian couples had an easier time because there were two of them, but all the kids were well cared for and well loved. Some of these kids have the classic stressful teenage conflicts. The adults all seem to have grown up up just fine.
    Research shows gay and lesbian adoptive parents do a good job.

    I think it's absolutely wonderful. Gay couples can make super parents. My partner and I didn't adopt, but we did do artificial insemination and now have an almost 17 year old daughter (who is straight, well adjusted, and smart). There is nothing wrong with a gay couple adopting. In fact, I've seen my share of straight couples who should not have adopted and frankly, I don't know how they were able to do so (I'm a therapist who works with kids and families). Being straight does not make one a good parent.

    I think any healthy couple or individual who can provide a loving home to a child is a great situation. Who the adoptive parent or parents sleep with should not be an issue if it is a loving committed relationship.

    A child can have heterosexual parents but their homelife can be a living hell for any number of reasons--abuse, alcoholism, etc. Having heterosexual parents is no guarantee that a child will be in the best home they can be in.

    Gay parents make a choice to bring a child into their home. Heterosexual parents might want to have kids, but it something that is expected of a couple. It isn't something expect of a gay couple, however.

    I know many gay people who are single or in relationships who have kids and are doing a wonderful job of raising them. There is a lot of research to back up the fact that gay parents even make better parents. They have to fight for their right to adopt children. Some straight parents could care less.

    I hope you are happy.

    I have a friend who has two moms. She loves them both and is glad to be with them. As I see them, they make up a real family. I think that you should be in love with who you want and if you want a child you should have one. I know that sometimes a kid needs both a mom and a dad figure in their life, however it seems to me that gay couples has both a female and male part in all of them. I could not mind being raised up by two lesbian's because I know they would have an open mind about all different things.

    I'm fully supportive of gay couples adopting smile

    My partner and I are currently going through the fostering process ourselves and have just been accepted to go to the formal stage (super excited).

    We both have a great deal of experience behind us and a happy fun and loving environment for any child to grow.
