Over the years I have changed my views on gay adoption. At one time I was against it because of concern about child abuse. As I've gained insight into this it turns out that my views were based on the fact that a lot of what I thought were gays were actually pedophiles. Now that is something we do not want adopting a child. Also we have a friend that after a few failed marriages and 2 kids figured out that she is a lesbian. All is well in her world and her kids (21 & 15) are happy with it.
