It is hard to say what is right when it comes to LGBT couples having children. The reason I say that, is because the traditional family unit is the best environment for a child to grow up in, despite what mainstream media will tell you.
However, with that being said, I also want to see children adopted and taken out of the system because that is no way for a child to be brought up.
Therefore, I am unsure of where I stand with LGBT couples having children. I do want to share a viewpoint that you not have heard before, though. The viewpoint is that of a little girl who was born to an LGBT couple, thanks to a sperm donor. She had some interesting things to say about how she was raised.
Millie Fontana, now 24-years-old, said that she always felt a void growing up, due to the lack of a father. She also expressed how she was lied to by her two “moms” about not having a father, and how that impacted her.
“I knew that I loved both of my parents but I could not place my finger on what it is I was missing inside myself,” Fontana said, admitting that she knew she wanted a father even though she could not articulate it, and even lacked a true sense of what a father was.
Fontana said, “When I hit school, I started to realize through observing other children and their loving bonds with their fathers that I really was missing out on something special.”
She began to ask about her father, and that is when her mother figures began lying to her. She said, “I was lied to throughout school, I was told that I didn’t have a father or that perhaps they didn’t know who he was.”
Fontana said the agenda her mothers pushed on her was unfair: To force the child into accepting something that was not entirely true, because they made the choice of using a donor.
Fontana continued, “When they chose what parts of my identity were acceptable to reveal to me, they took something from me and where other children were able to look in the mirror and reconcile those missing parts and say, ‘I love my mothers or my fathers,’ I could not because in my eyes, who were my parents to decide what parts of me were acceptable to reveal to me?”
Fontana admitted that her story is not one that is heard of often, “because nobody wants to hear about the other side of the rainbow. The side that is not catered for, that don’t grow up happy and grow up with a dissenting idea of what a family structure should be.”
After meeting her father at age 11, she was finally able to fill a void she had felt from birth. Fontana’s story is only one of many that will certainly come to light. As she explained so powerfully, human nature can’t be denied by political correctness.
Fontana added, “We (children of same-sex couples) want our mothers and fathers. I don’t understand why society is so fiercely rejecting such a natural concept that is acceptable in every other family structure.”
