I disagree. The typical american family is raised with both a mother (female) and father (male). The reason is a child needs to be brought into a disciplined yet caring home. The mother is usually the caring nurturing kind while the father disciplines the child and sets boundaries for the child. However, if both parents are the same sex is most likely there wont be a balance for these children. Another reason, is as the child of both sex parents grows up they will question why I dont have a mother and father. We all know it takes a man and a women to create a baby. Why change tradition then? If a couple chooses to be gay, they understand they cannot create children together. However, the insist to adopt a child and raise it with untraditional values.
I also disagree on why single americans should not adopt. As i stated before, it takes a male and female to create a baby. Male are less likely to adopt as single men. However, if a women is single, they should not be in a rush to adopt a child. If one cannot hold onto a relationship with a significant other, one cannot raise a child on their own. If your single, the child would just become a burden to you and whoever chooses to help raise your child like parents, siblings, friends, etc.
