Children adopted by gay couples are just as happy as those placed with traditional heterosexual families, new research has confirmed. Family experts at Cambridge University say the study disproved the assumption held by some that homosexual couples are not as successful at parenting. The research even showed that gay dads are happier than other parents, experiencing “especially low” levels of depression, although issues may arise for children adopted by gay parents in secondary school where they are more likely to be exposed to bullying.
