The success of a parent has "nothing to do with being gay or straight", a children's charity has said.
Interim chief executive of Action for Children, Jacob Tas, said:
Being a good parent has nothing to do with being gay or straight. Right now there are more than 6,000 children waiting to be adopted and an urgent need to find 8,600 foster families.
We run fostering and adoption services and help children achieve their dreams of having families.
