Introduction
Adoption is not about finding children for families, it’s about finding families for children” (Joyce Maguire Pavao). Same sex couples should have the same options as heterosexual couples. Who says that a gay couple can’t raise a child and they come out perfectly fine. Many same-sex couples, after a lot of struggle, have been able to adopt and have changed a child’s life.Allowing same-sex couples to adopt is a powerful step towards success and it helps in many ways, which is why same-sex couples should be able to adopt. Their love for the children is the same as not same-sex couples, there are way too many kids in adoption homes and there is no proof that “bad parenting” happens.
Same sex couples are just like non sex couple they have the same ability to raise a child and I believe they are capable of doing a better job. The only difference is that they are unable to adopt a child in the way non same sex couples can is that wrong or right. Same sex couples already go through so much in this society that they should at least have the right to raise a child. So many people are unable to have children naturally. So why not give the opportunity for gay couples to raise a child in the same way as a heterosexual couple can or will. If about half of all the states permit second parent adoptions then why can’t same sex partners adopt children? There are millions of orphans and making gay adoption legal will allow us to help these kids.

...do you ask because they seem like they would be way cooler than just having mother and father. I know so many gays and lesbian that would love to be a parent and would rock at being one. Are they able to know why is that because people in this society are always pointing the finger saying no that is not right and no they would be bad parents? Well how do you know that if you don’t give them a try and actually place that child in the home with them? I am all for gay and lesbians having children and If they every asked me for my opinion on the whole situation I would most defiantly tell them how I feel about the situation.
