I bought that e-book Savage Love (is that the name of it) so I remembered the story of Dan & Terry adopting their son. I don't read Dan for his professional sex talk work. Frankly it's not something I am interested in. However I do read/watch almost everything he writes about gay civil rights. I especially look up to him for the wonderful family he has, and the love he has for his husband Terry.
Finally, I don't know if you are aware but Jeremy Hooper and his husband and daughter have become one of their latest targets. I can't imagine, truly can't imagine how I would react if my family was publicly attacked. That Dan & Jeremy have their children attacked, imagining all kinds of harms, is simply beyond the pale. I am pretty sure parents who are gay will defend their families with everything they have and then some. The only consolation for them is that they are changing the culture so that ones who come after them will not have it as bad. They are removing some of the bumps in the road, taking the hits, so that families in the future will have their road a bit smoother.
I hope Dan reads my comments and bookmarks this website because it is so important and we should fight lies with truth.
An October 2011 report by Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute found that, of gay and lesbian adoptions at more than 300 agencies,
-10 percent of the kids placed were older than 6 — typically a very difficult age to adopt out.
-About 25 percent were older than 3.
-Sixty percent of gay and lesbian couples adopted across races, which is important given that minority children in the foster system tend to linger.
-More than half of the kids adopted by gays and lesbians had special needs.
300 Adoption Agencies were surveyed, that is a LOT that is an average of 6 per State. Gay, Lesbain & bi-sexual couples are providing loving homes for children who truly need a forever family. It's not right the way Brian Brown et al act like there is some kind of child snatching going on. These statistics really should be widely disseminated. (Hi Terry)
