High Risk Children & Same-Sex Parenting

A report out in the October issue of the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry finds that "high-risk" children adopted from foster care do just as well when matched with gay, lesbian or straight parents. Of the 82 foster children that psychologists at UCLA monitored for the study, 60 were placed with straight parents and 22 with gay or lesbian parents. After a two-year period of evaluation, the psychologists found little difference between the children's positive outcomes.
