Why is it that most states adoption law’s indicate that Same Sex Partners are not “allowed” to adopt but yet there are thousands of children in dire need of a good home?
My partner and I wish to have kids later down the road but my time clock is ticking loudly and she is not sure if she wants to go through the artificial insemination process, so recently we were discussing adoption and then realized that it would be very hard for us to adopt as a married couple here in the states. So then we thought let’s check it out overseas when we are ready to make it happen, but then we thought about the thousands of dollars we would be spending to make it happen. So right now it’s in the back burner, until further notice.
But our thing is, why can’t we adopt a child as a married lesbian couple when there are thousands of children that are abused every day by their heterosexual foster/adoptive parents? It just doesn’t seem fair to us in the LGBT community, as well as to the children. It is constantly said that we are “not fit to be parents”, but then again we know a lot of heterosexual parents that are not doing even a mildly good job to begin with. Talk about being unfair to our community, which is why we give a damn.
