You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.
Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)
I used to work with kids in state’s custody who were unable to be placed in foster/adoptive homes yet because of their behavior. Let me tell you…none of those kids gave a single fuck about whether their future parents were gay or straight. They just wanted a family. The kids don’t care. A mom and dad, two moms, one dad…
These were the ‘undesirable’ kids that a previous commenter mentioned. They were all older and had severe behavioral issues. Some were lower functioning. People were not fighting over these kids.
And on a side note, when I have kids one day, those will be the kids that I have. And I am so passionate about that, that I would never get involved with a woman who wasn’t completely on board with that as well.
