Gay Parenting is Just Gay Parenting

Relationship and dating experts tackled this hot topic on a recent YourTango discussion group about the growth of LGBT couples having their own children through third-party reproduction or adoption.

How Do Children of Gay Parents Grow Up Differently?

The panelists discussed how children of same-sex parents are well-adjusted, thriving kids who have "the opportunity to grow up more tolerant of difference."

Same-sex parenting is a controversial issue with the recent rulings against the Regnerus study, which claims that children of gay parents grow up differently.

Many LGBT couples are just trying to start a family, but they are met with criticism and negativity.  One of the experts highlighted the thoughts of many gay parents:

"There's a lot of planning and thinking about it, investing money and investing time. We have a lot of love to give and when we make that commitment, we really want it."
