It's hard to imagine a world with as many orphans as there are, and a world where a vast majority of children live below the poverty line. And so before you make up your conservative mind about same sex couples raising children, just remember, it's better to have a loving home, than a home with 2 heterosexual parents who do horrible things to you (which we read about in the news every single day). It's also better to have a home with 2 parents, as opposed to one, or none. I'm all for same sex couples adopting children for many different reasons. This particular couple (friends of friends) really caught my eye. They have that sparkle in their eye and I really hope they find their forever baby.
