The topic of homophobia is very much discussed these days. I think there is nothing wrong with people of the same sex loving each other, starting families and adopting children.
I don’t see anything wrong with adopting a child in a same-sex marriage. I find more information on the subject and just decided for myself to analyze what kind of child grew up in a same-sex family and in a heteronormative family. There are many studies that have shown that children raised in same-sex families grow and develop normally, without any differences, than children raised in heteronormative families.
