I come to this conclusion not just because I could easily articulate good arguments in support of same-sex couples adopting but rather, because of the simple fact that no one can present to me a logically substantive argument against it. In fact, I’ll even go as far as saying that the problem with ‘Same-Sex Couples & Adoption’ is not the couples themselves but rather, it lies in society’s tendencies to cling to social stigmas that are discriminatory and archaic; stigmas that then make the lives of those intimately involved in the process of Same-Sex adoption, both parents and child, more tumultuous in nature.
I have not been blessed with the gift of being a parent but my hope and assumption is that good parenting revolves around raising your child to believe that they can accomplish anything they set out to do; its about raising them to be men and women for others. My assumption is that its about allowing them to be whom they want to be whether or not its with relation to their career, university, religion, sexual orientation or otherwise. I would assume that being a parent has very little to do with your sexual orientation and more to do with what you have to offer to the child; a point which then leads to this final assumption, the notion that being a parent is about blessing your child with all you can possibly and positively bless them with. And based on these simple views I express, there is no argument to date that could convince me that same-sex couples could not provide a healthy environment that would help nurture and provide for an adopted child.
