We are living in a changing and opening world. However some topic always generated controversial, specially if people think they are against some established cultural values .

Nowadays the child adoption by gay couples is providing a lot of interesting arguments all over the world. In my country the Government Institutions are debating about the rights that no traditional families have.

I would like to know if you agree or not that gay couples can be able to race children as their own?

Sure! Why not?

Most of the reasons people give for denying it are based on misunderstanding and/or prejudice.

I strongly feel that they have every right to adopt. The whole point is that the child goes to a loving, supportive family.

of course gay couples should be allowed to adopt kids!
in my country this's not very common, but it's possible.
I can't believe there're no incentive at all in some countries to this.
I mean, "HELLO?! we're in 2006 (almost 2007)!!!". Not allowing gays to adopt is sooo last century! Smile

the children also have the right to choose her/his family. so i think gay couple shouldn't adopt little babies, they should choose the children who know what is gay, and can decided to live in such a family by himself.
