An Australian source quoting a fascist piece of tat British newspaper. Why would we care what Aussies think? Why would we take seriously what the Daily Mail has to say?
noo thats not what im saying, but the combined financial "cripping" crisis, angina and diabetes..
If it was just diabetes, of course they could have them
That is not right, 46 and 59 are not old!
Also, going against the grandparents wishes. If they didn't believe in the gay couple adopting their grandchildren it shouldn't have happened.
Well, obviously they should have gone to the grandparents.
If the adoption agency were told the girl was "'wary around men in general", why pair her with two male parents? It will be difficult enough for both of them living with two people they barely know.
I'm going to put this out there; I think gay adoption is fine, from birth - but these kids are 4 and 5, will remember having a mother/be used to having a female maternal figure in their lives (despite her problems), and I think the change would be difficult for them.
I also think it's disgusting the grandparents not only couldn't adopt, but were essentially blackmailed into not having a say in the process if they wanted to see their grandchildren. They aren't homophobic, they are just worried about how their children will be treated at school; that is other people's homophobia, not theirs.
Still, I'm sure (well, I hope) the agency knew what they were doing, and felt the gay couple were best for the children, so good luck to them.
This doesn't prove gay adoption is wrong. It proves that decisions regarding age are wrong. x
How ridiculous. The children should most certainly stay with their grandparents.
I don't see why a child would be adopted when it has a biological family who is willing to care for it? They aren't old, and diabetes and angina are not so limiting that they can't love the children and give them a happy upbringing.
I don't have an issue with the adoptive family, except that it seems a bit stupid to give them to a gay couple when the girl is scared of men. They should definitely stay with the grandparents. Although, they clearly didn't do so well raising their own daughter, given that she's a heroin addict and all, so maybe that was taken into consideration.
