    Normal not



    What is it when man's eyes stare at the material and deny the spirit either good or evil? Man as human animal vs. man as human spirit.

    It is then "as we are born", vs. as we are born of God. The stuff of the cosmos. Dust in, and dust out, so make the best of it.

    And if that's the outlook, then mother and father become parent 1 and parent 2. No longer spouses, but partners in some strange handshake agreement. And so far, they get what they beget, things are fair. They have made their bed so to speak.

    But then comes adoption. Many formative years captive to abnormality. Real child abuse of the mind, if not also of the body. Real pride in decay.

    Save the kids. Save the kids' sanity and salvation. Forbid the making normal of this aberration.

    When GLBT individuals or couples begin their journey to adoption, the first and most critical step is finding an agency that is welcoming. This often occurs through word-of-mouth references shared by experienced adoptive parents, as well as through websites dedicated to advocacy and education within the GLBT community.
