Gay adoption: City puts child welfare ahead of politics

Baltimore is the preferred venue for same-sex adoptions. That makes me so proud to be born and bred in Baltimore. The city's circuit court obviously puts the welfare of the children before politics. What difference does it make if it is a "same-sex" or "traditional" couple as long as the child or children will be raised in a loving environment?

How many children have been abused or killed in "traditional" households? How many children are in foster or other care in need of a loving home? If a stable couple wants to adopt, let them! Other people who do not agree with same-sex anything should mind their own business and leave other people's business alone. If you do not agree with same-sex marriage, then do not marry someone of the same sex.
