    Yes, you are right, there is no shortage of qualified, heterosexual, married couples, that are capable of adopting. However, there is a huge shortage of qualified, heterosexual, married couples that are willing to adopt.

    So why could anyone in good conscience deny a child a family simply because of that?

Boy that would be great huh.

    As long as they are not homosexual.


    I personally have no problems with steady, loving, financial secure homosexuals couples adopting children.

    The statistics suggest otherwise.

    Its not the background checks that take so much time. They can't take any more than a week or two. *shrug*

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    I object to discrimination.


    I am sure a child would much, much rather have two loving moms or dads then being shuffled around 'the system' until they're 18. And when it comes to the actual adoption heteros should not get put in line before the same qualified gay couple. First come, first serve.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
