Wake Up America
Being a parent is the greatest gift that any man or woman can receive. But, what does one do when the “powers that be” tell you that because you share your love and life with a person of the same sex that you are not fit to be a parent. Well, I am single straight parent and I GIVE A DAMN…there are so many children who are left on door steps or are in homes where they are being abused, and instead of placing them with a loving home, they are stuck in a system that is really only thinking about their own morals and beliefs.
If I was in a situation where I could not take care of my child, then I would rather them be in a loving home, no matter the sexual orientation of the people, that would be willing to take my child.
It really bothers me that all the government really cares about is, oh my god, two men or two women are going to adopt a child..SO WHAT THE HELL..let them. Who are we to tell someone that they shouldn’t adopt or have child because they are not the “traditional” family. Well guess what America, gay and lesbians with (or without) children are starting to become the new tradition. If America has no problems with single moms or single dads, why should they have a problem with two dads or two moms.
All any child really knows is that “I have a parent or parents that really, honestly love me” and that sexuality is not a issue at all. Bottom line is this – a parent is a parent, be they gay, straight, lesbian, or transgender. Also, LOVE IS LOVE.
