Okay, bad things happen. A lot of it posted right here on these boards. However, a couple, who was up to something nefarious, wouldn't go on Wednesday's Child. I'm sure it's just fine.

So, the kid is cursed by his good looks, according to the logic of the suspicious OP. He can't be adopted by a gay couple for "obvious reasons", and given his great looks, he can also make a straight couple go crazy...like the mother can't keep her hands off him, or the straight father being "turned" on a beautiful night by the exquisite beauty of the boy and goes into a homosexual rampage?

What a dirty mind this OP has!

Instead of posting such a ridiculous comment, maybe the OP should check him/herself into a shrink clinic.

I don't think that they will live happy... Three men in one house and two of them are homosexuals. i don't think that they adopt this kid to teach him how to live, ithink their marriage will lead only to divorce soon!

Agreed. Is this thread even real?

It sounds like you think homosexuals are incapable of this, or the attraction to young boys does not exist with them. You need look further than advocacy groups like NAMLBA who push for acceptance and relaxed age of consent laws.
They are considered perverts, similar to the way homosexuals were not all that long ago. One wonders if they too will start to be more accepted in X amount of years from now.
I didnt say I thought they were incapable I just wanted to discuss the reason for the post. People on here need to get real with this op. She or he is not saying anyting or thinking anything that a lot of other people would not be saying or thinking ( and not so nicely) they just would not post it so do not be rude to this person who shares that they feel uncomfortable and wants to talk about it. Insulting someone will not make the feeling go away but maybe an honest discussion will. I will give this gay couple the benefit of the doubt but since many in my family growing up were adopted ( including my own mother as a baby) I have normally thought of adoption as something for babies or very young children not teens and of course it is only in the last decade or so that gay rights gained prominence to the general public so it is all new and strange .

I guess what is also strange to me is to adopt a teen who is almost a grown man? How much time will they have with him before he leaves the house and goes out on his own? Yes it is strange to me ... I do not think the gay couple is incapable of doing something wrong and neither is a straight couple, I just hope for the best and the boy is old enough to protect himself and stand up for himself if there is something wrong going on. I do in general like the idea of gay couples adopting unwanted children.

I think people should be commended for adopting a child that age, gay or straight.

For the ones that say it is only for a few years. Wrong! They will be his parents for life!

I'm fairly confident that this will be a healthy parent/child arrangement but it seems a line between selecting a child in need of a home and selecting an attractive young man was blurred a bit.

The boy was relieved and down to earth and emotionally mature as he described his feelings of finally being adopted into a stable, permanent home.
Should we not allow the adoption of any "attractive" child over the age of 13?

If I were "worried" about this situation, I'd have to worry about an attractive 14-year-old female being adopted by a straight couple for the exact same reasons.

It makes me happy that this kid is finally going to get a permanent home.

Ask all of those teen altar boys who were molested by gay Roman Catholic priests.
