    If this were true, then why are there so many unadopted kids?

    Ask the well qualified parents for their opinion on this, after being on a waiting list for 2 years and paying outrageous and often hidden fees. I suspect it is bureaucratic nonsense, none of which would go away if gays were allowed to adopt, and in fact would probably get worse.

    Tell the agency that you're gay and you should have no problem.

    LOL I lived in an adoption home for 5 years. There most certainly was a shortage of parents willing to adopt those kids. They weren't tied up in waiting lists or bureaucratic bull****. They just didn't exist.

    Anecdotal evidence.

    Ludicrous. There are a lot of orphans just in the United States, not to mention world wide. 127,000 is estimated in America, there doesn't seem to be 127,000 heterosexual couples jumping up and down trying to get these kids. There's not a line for adoption. You have people getting fertilized, giving birth to octuplets before you have people looking to adopts. You may say that a mother and father make the best home...maybe. But any loving home is better than what the State can provide and if same-sex couples want to adopt, I say let them. We need all the people we can get willing to adopt. Children need a home, not "adults" arguing whether or not they get a loving family due to the make up of that family.

    Waiting time to adopt varies depending on the type of adoption and any unforeseeable circumstances that may arise. Estimates of waiting time are:

    * Healthy infant: 1 up to 7 years
    International: 6 up to 18 months
    Child waiting in foster care for an adoptive family: 4 up to 18 months

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    People who want to adopt adopt, that's the bottom line. There's not a shortage of kids in the US or the rest of the world. People are not lined up waiting for an orphan to be created. The US may have a bunch of laws that makes it take a lot of time to get paperwork through (waiting time is not a line, and you don't have to get an infant, there are plenty of other children needing homes), but there still are not enough willing heterosexual couples out there wanting to adopt to soak up all our orphans. Thus we should open it up to same-sex couples as well.
