As said before, adoption by same sex couples is not permitted everywhere. Belgium, Iceland, Sweden, South Africa, Spain and the United Kingdom are just a few of the places that do allow same sex couples to adopt. Other places like Denmark, Israel, Norway, and Germany allow stepchild adoption. There a few places like Republic of Ireland, Hungary, and a few others where you can adopt a child whether you're heterosexual or homosexual, because they allow individuals to adopt kids. More places are starting to allow co-habituating singles to adopt kids as long as the environment is perfect for the child. In fact as long as the child is happy is should not matter. We should be looking at whats best for the kid, everything else should not be such a big issue.
Adoption by same sex couples is something that is happening around us, and to many of us. It's not something we should just overlook. I, for one, am not bothered by the adoption of kids by same sex couples. I don't think it should matter, as long as the kids grow up safe. I think the biggest problem we have to worry about is the school system. It's not fair for these kids to be bullied at school. Kids these days will pick on a child for any reason. This is not the fault of the schools, they can't watch all the children all the time. This is something that needs to be talked about in the home, only we can help these kids live a normal life at home, as well as in the school. You need to talk to your child about this and let them know that it's okay for a child to have same sex parents. Whether a kid has two moms or two dads, this is still a person and they need to be treated as such. These kids need to grow up to have a normal life and choose their own paths. That is not for us or anyone else to decide but them. Maybe it's not as big as a problem as many make it out to be. As long as the kids grows up safe, thats all that should matter. We should be thinking only of the safety of the children when we talk about topics related to this issue.
