We need to put the needs of children first! We should be encouraging loving couples and families to adopt children. If there is a family, whether it be two moms or two dads who want to provide a life for a child, we should be happy about this. I have several friends who are same sex couples who have adopted children and they are magnificant parents who want nothing more than to provide a safe and happy home. I would hope that Virginia would make adpotion an equal process for all couples, same sex or not! Think of how many children could be adopted and have a home.
