What is (or at least should be) at the basis, foundation, the heart of a family? Love. There are over 1,000 children who are deprived of that true family love, and for who knows how long. If there is a caring, loving, genuine person, couple, family, who wants to welcome a new child into their family, why not let them? That is all the children want. Why should anyone care if the person(s) is in their late 40s, or they're gay, or they don't believe in Jesus? As long as the children experience love and the parent(s) cares about the children and their wellbeing, shouldn't that be enough?
