LGBT adoptions
 

I urge you to prevent discrimination toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and couples who wish to adopt children.  The notion of a "traditional family" unit is very different in today's day and age, where 1/4 of kids are raised by single parents, 2.5 million families are headed by a single dad, and 1.5 million kids are raised by grandparents. However, these children grow up into responsible, healthy adults. With thousands and thousands of children needing homes, how can we deny people who want to be loving, responsible parents from having children just because of who they love, and destine these kids to remaining in foster care?
