    Couple Forced to Give Grandchildren Up for Adoption by Gay Men

    Couple forced to give grandchildren up for adoption by gay men because 'they are too old to look after them' - at 46 and 59

    Two young children are to be adopted by a gay couple, despite the protests of their grandparents.

    The devastated grandparents were told they would never see the youngsters again unless they dropped their opposition.

    The couple, who cannot be named, wanted to give the five-year-old boy and his four-year-old sister a loving home themselves. But they were ruled to be too old - at 46 and 59.

    For two years they fought for their rights to care for the children, whose 26-year- old mother is a recovering heroin addict.

    They agreed to an adoption only after they faced being financially crippled by legal bills.

    The final blow came when they were told the children were going to a gay household, even though several heterosexual couples wanted them.

    When the grandfather protested, he was told: 'You can either accept it, and there's a chance you'll see the children twice a year, or you can take that stance and never see them again.'

    The man said last night: 'It breaks my heart to think that our grandchildren are being forced to grow up in an environment without a mother figure. We are not prejudiced, but I defy anyone to explain to us how this can be in their best interests.'

    Social workers themselves have admitted that the little girl is 'more wary' of men than women.

    That's a devastating example why gays shouldn't be allowed to adopt children by the law.

    Thumbs Down

    Sick! Now I can see that there really is something behind it all, why else put them with gay men when there are also heterosexual couples who would wanted them.

    What is going on this world. Two middle-aged grandparents are considered too old to take care of their grandchilderen. And forced to turn them over to a gay couple. And they are even being blackmailed about it .

    Incredible

    Truly incredible. Democracy seems to mean that minority groups are more powerful than the silent majority.

    Adoption by homos won't last. It only needs one legal precedent that the decision ruined someones life. Then the million dollar compensation will stop councils making such a risk.

    As much as I distrust the Daily Mail, I feel that this may be a relatively unbiased article, considering their usual fare. With this in mind, I must say that I object to such things for the same reasons as the grandparents seem to: not because of the couple's ability to raise a child, but merely the psychological effects of growing up without a mother figure. I have had this argument with many people before, but I fail to see how a "female friend of the family" can function as a mother. A strong female role model, perhaps, and maybe even a kind of "aunt", but by no stretch of the imagination a real mother figure. Some would say a strong role model is enough, but I can testify, from the opposite side of the fence, that growing up with a father that was merely a strong male role model and not a "father" in the complete sense of the word caused me a fair amount of psychological trauma throughout my teenage years, especially when going through the onset of puberty.

    I'm with you on that one. The article seems genuine and not speculating any minor points to sell a story.

    The whole thing is disgusting and one which should be held up and displayed to the fawning animals that this cannot, and will not, continue.
    The British family should be united, not divided.

    And to put them with the mentally ill homosexuals was just one more kick in the teeth for the Grandparents.

    Too old at looking after their grandchildren at 59 and 46? What is that all about? In a month's time, my parents will be 46 and 45, respectively. Imagine, due to "high parent age" they'd either take my little brother away from my mother at age 9, or worse take my little sister, aged less than a year away from my father.

    A school friend and his brother were even born to a couple aged 52/53 and 38/39, so by the time they were 6 and 7 respectively, their parents would have reached the age the grandparents in the case had. I've never heard them complaining that their parents were too old, if anything then having parents of advanced age made them much more reasoned and well disciplined, with both becoming prefects in due time at our school.

    The fact that I am anti-gay-adoption because I feel that childrne should at best both have a male and a female role model in their lives aggravates the matter, but even without that it'd be aggravating enough to understand why any social worker would be of the opinion that children were better off with some random couple (and especially a homosexual one at that! ) than with their biological grandparents.

    I stayed with my grandparents quite a bit when I was a child, and a youth, and if anything then I think it's made me more mature or more reasoned. Having "mentors" who'd seen a lifetime of situations was definitely a bonus if anything.

    This case here is just ridiculous. The social worker who wished to allowed this to be sanctioned should be hanged, drawn and quartered.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I did not see anything in the article to claim that the gay couple were suffering from any mental illness, and I am relatively certain that a council would consider such things a liability, therefore I am wondering if you had additional information on the subject to share, or whether you are one that believes homosexuality itself to be a mental illness, in which case I must agree to differ on said subject rather vehemently, even if I do not wish to heist this thread with said disagreement.
