Love Me Feed Me Never Leave Me
In 2003, Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriages. Since this year, 8 states have gradually partaken in the large debate that has changed the lifestyle were all used to. With this legalization in New York that started June 24, 2011…comes the idea of starting a family. Same-sex couples cannot birth a child, so most of them intend to adopt. By allowing same-sex couples to adopt it will decrease the financial stress on orphanages, give orphans a better quality lifestyle, and portray that the typical “American Family” can be anything one desires to make it.(FindLaw)
Taking care of children is a difficult and stressful job, not only mentally and physically, but financially. The idea of financial strain on places like orphanages is a heavy burden to the wallet. Most people don’t incorporate the price of food, medical bills, gifts on birthdays and holidays (if any) and general bills like…electric, running water and gas. To house multiple children in an orphanage commences to more or less $300,000.00 annually.(4dshift) If the children housed have disabilities or allergies, it can cost up to half a million a year! Most orphanages are purely donation based and really take all the help they can get. Thats where same-sex marriages can contribute greatly. By allowing couples of same gender to adopt, it decreases the strain on the wallet that these housing facilities pay. These couples are willing to give a little to get a little…or in this case…a lot!

McKenzie Reviewed by Jim Powell Nowadays, it is considered acceptable to send a young person from a supportive, wealthy family away to a residential boarding school. At the same time it is considered destructive to send a young person from an unsafe, unhealthy home to a nurturing, educational, residential setting. As a result of old orphanage ...
The life of an orphan is of nothing, I, nor anyone I have talked to, can understand. The feeling of being unwanted or given away can leave one with an uneasy and overwhelming feeling of loss and despair. When a child has no one to turn to, it’s as if all hope is lost. The life and mindset of someone in this position is only a negative one…a depressed one, which is turn is followed by a bad lifestyle choice.Then a loving and beyond willing family comes to save him or her from a once burdened life. Open arms and warm hearts are welcomed for the young child searching for a place they belong. Finally a feeling of serenity and assured comfort is felt throughout the child and all is okay again. Finally two people willing to take in a once distraught child and give them a new life filled with gifts, a home and a wanting that they have yearned for. But wait, the arms are not of a women and male…they’re of two women…or two men! Does that make a difference? Does the life of the child they have given a home to differ? Certainly shouldn’t… The child is now attended to all of his or her personal needs and wants. Each kiss and each “goodnight” is said directly to their child, not a room full of them. This makes a difference for the child. A new sense of belonging, a new feeling of being apart of a family and everything that comes with it, is utterly undeniably a feeling no one should be deprived of. This betters the life of the once orphan mentally because any sense of depression is now diminished by the new parents sense of caring they have for their new child. This also benefits the once orphans lifestyle and physical being because now their parents cant attend to quality health care and dental care. This ultimately adds to the care and wholeness the child feels.
Since when was it immoral to want to raise a family? Since when was it ONLY possible to be the perfect “American Family”? This is an impossible task, mostly because no one is perfect! If no one is perfect, then why is it possible that someone has the say in what you can and cannot have. If same-sex couples are judged based on orientation…it’s considered discrimination…which is illegal. One cannot live a life based on how someone else see’s fit! Same-sex couples who are able to adopt because they show excellent signs of financial stability, mental stability and a great loving relationship they want to share with a child, should not be restricted due to an image someone once painted into the minds of the older generations. (Because the younger generations have accepted the change).
It is my understanding that in my continued professional development, as manager of my setting it is my role to ensure that myself and every member of the staff and management committee understand the values, principles and statutory framework that underpins service provision in children’s care, learning and development At all times in our centre the welfare of the child is paramount and we ...
Children growing up in same-sex parental households do not have differences in self-esteem, gender identity, or emotional problems from children growing up in heterosexual parent homes according to Ellen C. Perrin, MD, professor of pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston.(WebMD) No harm..not foul…the child adopted still has morals and still is a normal child doing normal things, just with parents who aren’t biologically his or hers…but is loved just the same.
Adoption for same-sex couples should be allowed…if someone was purple it wouldn’t make a difference on which movie theater they went to…or which restaurant they ate in. They still would have to buy a ticket or pay the bill! Same concept with couples adopting children…they still grow up with a brain and a heart and they still have loving caring parents who will treat them no different if they birthed the child themselves.
