4% of all adopted kids in the US are raised by same-sex couples. Many of them also use the help of surrogates to have babies. And despite the fact that some people think that children can be raised only by a mom and dad, examples from real same-sex couples prove the opposite. No more words are needed when you see these happy children standing alongside their dads.
