cont. My younger child WOULD have suffered if raised by either or both of her biological parents. But instead, because my partner and I adopted her, she is THRIVING!!!!! When I legally marry my partner this summer in my home state, our children, our family, our friends, our co-workers and employers, will all be there with us to celebrate. I am so sick of hearing about how our children supposedly suffer when I see my children every single day and KNOW that they are happy, healthy, and adored. What a load of baloney!!!!
