In "Exposing kids to gays" (Forum, May 25), Joe Rakes states that children adopted into homes where the parents are homosexual are "no different than children being raised in a household in which the parents are drug abusers, alcoholics or mentally or physically abusive. It's not normal."
Being adopted into a homosexual couple's home is exactly like being adopted into a heterosexual couple's home. There are two loving parents who desperately want the child.
People who jump through the hoops and expense to adopt a child are committed to their relationship and their children. They just want to love, nurture and be a family.
