If they allowed gay couples to adopt, there would be a lot more kids with good homes instead of stuck in the circle.

For some years now I have donated many dollars to an organization that gives assistance to street kids, abandoned by their families. The group does not discriminate on any bases but age, and they ask no personal questions other than routine health care and for statistical reasons. Many of these kids are GLBT. That's the reason I donate. My spouse and I gave much thought about adopting some years ago, but decided that due to hate and bigotry that would be directed towards us, we would fore-go the trouble, and just help with our money. It's a shame really, for we could have provided a good home, love, and support for two or three kids. I'm not sorry we made the decision we did, but I am sorry for the kids that missed out on the life we could have provided.

Many lesbians and gay men are parents; others wish to be parents. In the 2000 U.S. Census, 33% of female same-sex couple households and 22% of male same-sex couple households reported at least one child under the age of 18 living in the home. Although comparable data are not available, many single lesbians and gay men are also parents, and many same-sex couples are part-time parents to children whose primary residence is elsewhere.
Not sure about 2010, but the numbers are increasing as the legal protections provided by marriage equality are increasing, and as state bans on same sex couple adoptions are declared unconstitutional.
