Re: Child Placement

I am very disturbed to read so many comments on here against the placement of children into loving homes that might be 'gay'.Children need loving parents, whether gay, straight or single. The top priority of any human services for children should be to find a good 'match' of a loving home for a child.There have been many instances where children have found loving parents to care for them who happened to be gay.

Children want to be loved, and cared for. They do not care whether one is 'gay', or not. That prejudice is a learned one.

Support children being placed in loving homes, to adults who can care properly for them.

Being a loving, caring, responsible parent for a child should be the only criteria.
