My husband and I have been foster parents for 7 years with two adopted sons and one son waiting for his adoption to be finalized. We have met extra-ordinary foster and adoptive parents over the years with a number of them gay or lesbian couples. These parents are exceptional and should not be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. We have had over 20 children in our home and know the need for loving homes is great. Please do not a keep children from these loving homes. The children will be the ones that will suffer the consequences.
