    They were unintentionally deprived of one to become orphans, generally. Why would two loving people who want to raise a child be a poor alternative to no parents?

The widespread yearning for love from others is acute, emanating from the unwanted, including children without parents, up for adoption, and adoption is almost the perfect cure in this category. The child will grow up in a home with unconditional love, a secure mental foundation grounded in love, and ready to contribute to our cultural community in a positive way.
    Great opening to a post...

    Is that when two "working street women" get married? Never heard that term hence the question.

    Before I freak you out any further... I was 100% joking.

    So whipping it out and waving it at them is not part of normal parenting? I've been going about it all wrong then?

    You would think the way that some idiots on this site post they actually believe that. Good parenting does not involve a penis or a vagina....they don't seem to get it. Good parenting requires love, patience and guidance...and it doesn't matter if you have a vagina or a penis to teach it.

    How true. People are the same the world over with all the imperfections inherent in our species. People who claim same-sex couples are bad for adopted children should produce statistics and compare them to non-same-sex couples.
