Gay Adoption Has Nearly TRIPLED In The Past Decade!!!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayBaby BlabberInspirationLGBT

gay and lesbian adoptions triple


Back in June, we were VERY pleased to hear that gay adoptions were increasing in the U.S., according to census numbers.

Now, we're thrilled to announce that an analysis of recent population trends indicates that "numbers of gays and lesbians adopting children has NEARLY TRIPLED in the past decade!"

Here's what Miami attorney Elizabeth Schwartz, who's coordinated 100+ gay adoptions in the past year, had to say about it:

"It's a stratospheric increase. It's like going from zero to 60. I think many really dreamed of doing this but it wasn't something they ever thought would become a reality."

Absolutely wonderful! As we said back in June, let's keep those numbers going up, and let's keep providing children with loving and caring families!

    IM all for Gay Adoption, but they need to really check out who these inocent children are going to
    I still question how the hell did anyone with even half a brain allow Rosie O;Donell to adopt children
    At the time she was single, later she got MARRIED (remember that ), than divorced, than drunk, than hooked up, than out of work
    You can only imagine what life for those children are like

    The two men in the picture are characters on the British soap opera Cornation Street.
    The blonde man is the biological father of the one boy in the storyline. He is a gay man who donated his sperm to a female friend who wanted to have a child.

    STFU you homophobes. Sorry gay children are born TO STRAIGHT people. How the hell do you thik we got here. Dumbasses. Also gay parents are just as capable if not more than straight people. SO eat Sh*t.

  6. 6

    Excellent News!!

  7. 7

    Just what the world needs…more screwed up kids who don't know the difference between a mom and a dad. Having sexual perverts adopt children is not helping anybody.

    No end of selfish b'stards out there is there. A child needs to good parents a mother and a father. The alternative might be better than a dead beat dad or loser mom but still not good enough. If these people are intelligent they need to see that. See past their selfish desire to be fulfilled by a paid for kid and deal with the fact that its just not good enough! Truthy hurts.

  10. 10

    I don't believe children should be brought up in a gay household. This is sad news actually.
    It takes a female and a male to make them and a woman and a man should raise them.

  11. 11

    Child molester adoption is up 300% s what you should be writing. And look at those guys, are they trying to get their kids into The Village People?

  12. 12

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – Not true. It takes a sperm and an ovule to create a human, yes. But anyone with a good heart is capable of raising a kid right. My best friend parents were a female and a male. A female who was a prostitue and abandoned her, so her dad who was raising her ended up in jail cause he killed his girlfriend. My friend ended up being raised by her grandmother, the only true and real mother she ever had. And her dad she never saw again since he was in jail forever.

  13. 13

    I'm all for equal rights and hold nothing against gay people; however, I think a child should IDEALLY be brought up by a mother figure as well. They need to have a woman like that in their life from an early age for a healthy upbringing. Obviously, I would never deny an orphan the chance to live with a gay couple, I'm just saying.

    Re: Gay Republican – 300% REALLLLY? 300%?????

  15. 15

    i wonder if the folks at corrie know u are stealing images from them and using them for ure own website???

  16. 16

    You people are truly a disgrace to the human race. What is this, the 1800's? Are we STILL this ignorant of a country or do all of these commenters hail from the same trailer park in Arkansas? To say that a gay person is incapable of raising a child (that would otherwise grow up in this country's BROKEN system for orphans) is utter bullshit! These are caring individuals that want to share their love with children that were for whatever reason turned away by they're STRAIGHT biological parents. Get your heads out of the sand, people. This is a GOOD thing!

    And yes, I am a STRAIGHT liberal. Stick that in your right wing pipe and smoke it!

    Re: Mr. Strat – AS opposed to millions of kids who had straight parents who also don't know the difference between a mom and a dad thanks to abandonment and high divorce rate? With all of the kids who could use two loving parents, this could be a positive step and another answer for parentless kids.

  18. 18

    Re: DisgustedByHate – thank you!!!!!!
    seriously i was beginning to wonder if there were onlyl close-minded ignorant 80 yr olds on this website.. loving parents are loving parents…. single woman adopt, gay couples adopt, single men adopt, who cares as long as it's a loving home.. better than leaving those children in foster care or worse.. people need to get over themselves this is not the 1920s we have come a long way since then..well most of us anyway

  19. 19

    Gays should not be allowed to adopt. It will fuck with a kids head..This has been proven.

  20. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: NookiesWA – Proven where and by whom? Serial foster care and orphanages mess with kids heads more.

  21. 21

    Re: NookiesWA – No it hasn't. Don't confuse your personal opinion with fact.

  22. 22

    This is great to read especially since there are so many children waiting for loving homes - isn't that what this is all about? MarioMonjack is a putz & reading what he & other small minded people have said makes me ill; I hope eventually he can understand how sadly wrong he is with the opinion he posted here.

  23. 23

    To MARIOMONJACK … Check your freaken Facts !!!! Gay ppl are no more likely to ABUSE children , They are LESS likely to sexualy abuse children and Children raised by gay parents have the same chance of growing up straight or gay as they do in strait familys !! … I think it's wonderfull , I'm 100% for ANYONE adopting children , single people , gay or not , women or men , older people young people , but please , Gay couples , Truly give all children a chance there are so many OLDER kids in the system , yes everyone WANTS a baby , it's great and i understand why , but before getting a suragate or looking for the babys , go to a adoption site and look at children that are older then a year old . read there storys , see that they need love and affection as well there storys are sad and they need more love and attetion then babys , and your able to miss the messy baby phase, the up all night , crying trantem phase and get to enjoy them and they will love you because they can understand what you've done for them , I was adopted at 6 months but not fully legily adopted untill just after a year , my parents where in there late 30's and the adoption agency almost woulent give them a child they said they where told old , but i'm glad they did , a foster home is NO place for a child , I still have issues of abondonment etc .. so we should ALL Adopt and please look at older kids !

  24. 24

    WHAT THE F**K is wrong with you ppl !!!! seriously … if a child needs a home and has two loving fathers , or two loving mothers lined up , who's to say they woulent be compleatly happy , my personal thought is EVERY child should have souport and love regardless of if it's two daddys , two mommys or a mom and a dad …. whats worse , a child in a gay home , or a child in a straigt home where daddy hit them , or both mommy and daddy are drug addicts ?? ppl who are more upset by it being a gay couple get your head out of your ass and look around , your an idiot … congratulations … and if your leading HATE speach with REGLIOUS reasons … God said to love everyone !!! not love ppl who are straight…

  25. 25

    As I'm skimming these comments, I'm not sure if people are just trolling or actually serious. Are there still people who actually believe that being gay is something that can be changed or influenced? Let me let you in on a little secret. I was brought up by two very loving and heterosexual parents, a mother and a father, and I'm gay. They, and I know that my being gay has nothing to do with the way I was raised. I just don't understand how this kind of logic goes around in this world. I'm sure every gay person would say they have been gay since birth, yet we still have homophobes who believe it is a choice. That kind of ignorance is something I'm not capable of understanding. Enough with the sap story, though, and let's get to the facts. You can find numerous studies and interviews on the internet of children who grew up with gay parents. Most are successful, some are not. It's almost as if they're not so different from children growing up with heterosexual parents. Could it possibly be true that your ability to raise and love a child isn't related to what sex you're attracted to?

  26. 26

    I have actually witnessed a 4 year old boy living with two males..He asked if he was like his parents (gay)..Ban them from adopting.

  27. 27

    Re: NookiesWA – Again, not sure if you're trolling or actually serious. This isn't the first time I've called you out for using a jaded personal experience or stereotype to push your agenda on this site. Your view of the world is dangerously naiive and closed-minded. And no, I'm saying that all people against gay rights are closed-minded. I'm saying you personally, through your comments on this site alone, are closed-minded. You've never attempted to defend yourself, either, which I am not surprised by. It's very difficult to defend homophobic and closed-minded comments, which clearly you've come to understand yourself.

    Re: joethehobo – Gays are an abomination. They are a genetic screw up. Either its bad wiring or a chemical imbalance in the brain attacking that statement would be idiotic considering that would basically be attacking science. We're animals, we have one purpose in life..to reproduce. Any and all animals. Science states this. If you're born with fucked up genes being attracted to the same sex you cannot reproduce therefore making you useless. This is not an opinion this is a fucking FACT. Again, one would argue that old people are useless, mentally off people,etc..Well scientifically speaking..YES that is also true. But society and its sugarcoating has lead us to believe otherwise. (unless you literally just say well gays can knock up a woman obviously) Gay people cannot admit the very basics of their existence(a genetic fuck up) so theres no point in defending myself against people that will call others ignorant while ignoring the fact they are indeed a genetic screw up that is the ultimate display of ignorance. It makes them look like an idiot and I don't waste my time with fuck tards.

  31. 31

    Re: joethehobo – Gays do not want equality they want special treatment. We have seen this with other minorities. If we just said fuck it, and allowed gays to get married in all states then gays would stop bitching..But NOPE. It will continue they will find something else to whine about. Take for instance this Chaz Bono thing..Worst dancer on the show, got ahead because he was gay. Gay people were voting for him solely because hes gay…He got attacked on the show just like everyone else seasons before him but, if you attack a gay person its considered homophobic..FUCKING PLEASE. He was attacked because he was a shitty LARD ass dancer. For instance, I would punch perez in the face, of course glaad would say it was a hate crime and homophobic..But no, hes just a douchebag..being gay is last on that list of why someone would punch perez in his face.

    This day in age, if you say something about a black person you're racist..If you hit him its a hate crime. If you say something to a gay person thats negative that isn't even remotely related to him being gay you're homophobic and ignorant…get the fuck out of here with that shit. We have seen it before with hispanics and blacks. But at least they unlike gays aren't as fucking annoying…I went to google and typed in "gay parade" that is all the evidence I need to see..Sorry, being gay does not give you the right to dance around in your underwear or wear assless chaps. Eradicate them.

    Re: NookiesWA – You are incorrect in stating that same-sex attraction is a genetic screw up. There are over 450 documented species who exhibit same-sex relationships. Scientific theory suggests that same-sex partnerships help to raise children that have missing or hurt parents; or in some species the same-sex partners raise the kids while the biologic parents go to hunt. This area of study is new, but we are learning more everyday. Millions of people and hundreds of species is not a mistake, it's a variant such as red-hair or hazel eyes.

  33. 33

    Re: NookiesWA – You sure are inspired by a topic you seem to know nothing about! I'm going to bypass all of the remarks you have made to me, personally, calling me a genetic screw up, and all of the other hateful phrases you used.
    First off, I agree with you on many counts. Humans are animals and we are meant to reproduce. I can agree with that. However, that doesn't mean that my ability to adopt and raise a child is not a valued skill in this society. Many straight couples decide not to have children, and that is there choice.
    Second, I agree with you on the special treatment thing. I ask for no handouts in life, and expect none. I agree with you that Chazz Bono simply got ahead because of the fact that he's a transexual, and you're probably right in saying that many people in the LGBT community voted for him just because he's a member of their community. I think this is wrong, and it happens in different forms every day.

  34. 34

    Re: joethehobo – However, most of the other parts of your astonishingly mean-spirited rhetoric is simply untrue. Homosexuality is observed in many species in nature, but as you said above, you googled 'gay parade' and "that was all the evidence I need to see" which clearly means you wouldn't respond to facts or logic, anyway, so I don't expect you to educate yourself on the subject, because that's simply just not what people like you do. Needless, to say, judging from the previous posts you have made, I was not surprised that this is how you've collected your information, and again, I'm not surprised that you lack the tact to know not to admit this information, anyway.

  35. 35

    Re: NookiesWA – You were saying that being gay is like being black or another minority, except we are more annoying. This country at one time declared that African Americans could not vote, women could not vote, and that someone of one race could not marry one of the other. These situations have all been corrected, except for some reason, I still don't have the right to marry. Now you may not consider yourself a racist, but for some reason, stopping me from marrying who I love is okay to you. In all honesty, you probably are a racist, because you've shown time and time again that you are a generally intolerant and mean-spirited person, so I apologize if I over-estimated your character.
    You say that gays don't want to be equal, they just want special treatment. Well how I see it, you have the right to marry, I don't. I want to have the same rights as you, but you don't want me to. Now who is the one who wants the special treatment again?

  36. 36

    Re: JimA – Just because a large number exist does not make it right. Just because a large amount of people share the same opinion does not make that a correct fact. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that proves nothing..At all.

    "There are over 450 documented species who exhibit same-sex relationships." Yes and 98% of the animals that are of those 450 species are straight. Again it proves nothing. There is a strong possibility that the "documented species" couldn't even be correctly identified as being male/female to begin with…and im hoping you're not referring to things like lionesses hanging back to take care of of the young while the males hunt..Thats invalid. Thats not a same-sex role. That can't even be classified as that.

  37. 37

    Re: JimA – "u are incorrect in stating that same-sex attraction is a genetic screw up." Uhh no. Sorry im not, this may crush you that not only science but religion is both against you. Anyone who disagrees with that SCIENTIFIC fact is a complete fucking moron. Ironically gays main insult is "ignorant" that makes me LOL. Just because a scientist hasn't came out and said it does not mean its true. Sorry!

  38. 38

    Re: JimA – Again, you're arguing with science and biology. You're only attempting to incorrectly argue something because you have no evidence to back it up knowing no scientist come out stating it..We consider birth defects such as mental handicaps a genetic screw up..being born not being attracted to the same sex is just another mental handicap that hasn't be thoroughly studied.. We don't understand how it works. But pure statistics is enough to state that its not normal therefore a genetic screw up. I'm sorry to bring you the correct information..But you were just dealt a bad hand

  39. 39

    The only thing those "animal studies" prove is that other species are also effected by it. Thats it. It proves nothing else. You know animals are also born with GENETIC DEFECTS such as two heads, having poor vision, heart defects,etc,etc..just sayin..I don't understand why someone would attempt to argue that..Maybe when a couple non bias scientist that don't have an agenda comes out stating then maybe you will pull your head out of your ass..Do you think im insulting gays when I say genetic screw up? I'm not using that as an insult luls..When someone is born with mental retardation..SCIENCE states that he was born with genetic deficiencies AKA a genetic screw up..But society would not say that. Thats just society sugarcoating shit. Sorry, but you're a genetic screw up. Deal with it. Statistics and the Straight to Gay birth rates prove so.

  40. 40

    Re: NookiesWA – How about every single psychological health/medical association or board declaring that homosexuality is not a mental disorder and should not be treated as such? They even went so far as to say that treating or describing sexuality as a mental disorder is both false and dangerous. How about that for science?

  41. JimA says – reply to this


    Re: NookiesWA – Statistically speaking, 10% of the US population is gay. Also statistically speaking 10% of the US population is left handed. Your basis for saying gay is a "genetic screw up" is that is not the normal majority. By your logic, then left handed people are also a genetic screw up. Again, I assert it is a genetic variant.

    Both science and religion support that gays and lesbians are a significant part of society. There are millions of gays and lesbians, and millions of straight supporters who love them and accept them as an equal part of humanity. You are out numbered.

  42. 42

    Re: joethehobo – They don't come out saying anything because of agendas and propaganda. They don't feel like having GLAAD and other LGBT organizations harass them with phone calls stating the truth and again, this subject hasn't even been studied or understood fully. Tunes will change eventually. Re: JimA – Uhh no, it doesn't matter what a human being is as far as what hand he's most dominate with..Being a rare left handed is rather irrelevant when we're talking about if a human being cannot be attracted to the same sex to breed. Again science and nature, programs us to be attracted to opposite sexes to carry out our only purpose in life..To reproduce. You are attempting to argue the very basics of biology, science and nature. Gays really are thick headed whiny bitches arent they lmao? "You're outnumbered" Highly doubt it, if thats the case why didn't gay marriage get legalized IN THE MOST GAY FRIENDLY STATE in the nation eh? Again, you're listening to propaganda and believing it.

  43. 43

    Re:NookiesWA -I have never has the desire to create a profile on this site before but your name calling, ignorant, childish, self righteous attitude has left me no choice. Who is the "we" you keep referring to? "We think this" and "We think that"? I would love to see where you get your "facts" from. By the way, do you know the difference between a fact and an opinion? A fact is something that is proven and can never be challenged or changed. An opinion is something that is expressed with emotion and evokes a conversation between people. The fact that you consider "birth defects mental handicaps" is both offensive and outdated. No one has used the term "handicap" in decades. I have been living with Spina Bifida for the past 18 years and in no way, shape or form does it affect my brain. I think that I am in no way incapable to less than or more than any one else on this planet because of that. By the way, gay marriage was passed in the most gay friendly state. It was a historic moment in New York history and something that I am proud to have witnessed after much debate.

    Re: NookiesWA – Biology, science and nature have all unequivocally proved that same-sex attraction exists. I exist. Who do you think is typing this?

    Have you reproduced yet? According to you it is the only purpose to life. I don't agree with that one bit, but that is just my humble opinion.

    I have tried to help you see other opinions and perspectives. But more over I have tried to teach you to love you fellow brothers and sisters. You may not be able to do this; but I tell you this, I love you anyway and trust that one day your eyes will be opened to the compassion that exists in this world.

  45. 45

    Re: NookiesWA – Okay, I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here, but there's no way you actually believe this, right? Am I the butt of the joke or something? You actually think there's some big conspiracy out there that GLAAD is threatening the medical society into pressuring them to say something we know to be true in the first place? You say science is on your side, yet when science is against you, you deny it. Let me fill you in on a little secret. If you're going to continue to bash gays and refuse their rights and call them an abomination, you need to get off of the science bandwagon, because science is not on your side, and it never will be. People like you are slowly but surely dying out, and the benefits of this are already coming to fruition.
    On the other hand, some of your comments have been so outlandish that there is no way that you could possibly believe them, so I am assuming you are using satire to push gay rights forward, and for that I thank you. So which is it? Are you working for our cause or just bat-shit crazy? It's one or the other.

  46. 46

    Re: noonehascommonsense – Thank you for your kind words. Don't ask NookiesWA where they get their information. I kid you not, and am completely serious when I tell you that a couple of posts ago, NookiesWA said, "I just googled gay parade and that was all the research I needed to see." Completely serious. This is the kind of person we're debating with. And they think we're the one with a brain disorder. You can't make this stuff up!

  47. 47

    What kind of country do we live in where NookiesWA has the right to marry and I don't!? What kind of country do we live in wehre NookiesWA is seen as a better fit to raise a child then me?

  48. 48

    Re: joethehobo - you're welcome. I'm not gay but have always and will always support the lgbt community. That statement NookiesWA made and many more were the reason I chose my name. It's people like her that are the reason homophobia exists and stalls the progress that society so desperately needs. I will always wonder how the terms "equality" and "special treatment" can be confused. You me and other posters on here should form some kind of coalition or something and stand up for ourselves every chance we get. The more of us we have the less of them there are and before we know it we will completely forget that they ever existed!
