There are MANY kids who grow up with mothers and fathers… and STILL become criminals, delinquents, unsuccessful, detriments rather than uplifting members of society. I was raised with two LOVING parents, just so happened it was a man and a woman. A child doesn’t need heterosexual parents to be functioning members of society. A child needs LOVE, affection, moral teaching, proper discipline, freedom to create, imagine, believe, understand, fall then rise again. A child needs to be taught HOW to live the best life possible. Who that comes from, be it a SINGLE MOTHER, SINGLE FATHER, HETEROSEXUAL, OR HOMOSEXUAL COUPLE, doesn’t matter.
