In PregDream we will talk about the adoption by a homosexual man, the process that must be carried out, as well as the contextualization and the difficulties that can arise when educating these children.
The illusion and the desire to have a child, that being to be cared for and educated during all the days of your life, is something natural in the lives of people regardless of their sex or their condition. Adoption by homosexual people is an issue that has always been really controversial and controversial, with many voices both in favor and against this right, but that over time , and the changes that have taken place in our current society , has been taking another turn and today it is really accepted.
Being a father when you are homosexual or gay is not easy since it is important that the education that is going to be given to the person from a young age includes certain knowledge, which as many people have expressed in the history of adoptions in a couple homosexual, they are competitions of the woman. This is the opinion that for many years has been maintained with respect to that gay or homosexual father who decides to take the step of adopting, but luckily this type of opinion has gradually disappeared from our current panorama .
Same-sex parenting has been a highly controversial issue that has created much controversy within our society. Let’s say that until a few years ago the fact that a gay person thought about being a father was unthinkable and highly criticized. Fortunately, society has evolved towards other ideas that contemplate fatherhood within same-sex relationships .

Likewise, the situation evolved in such a way that paternity by adoption was allowed at first to single parents and later to already consolidated couples . Thus, from the year 2000, the Autonomous Communities were modifying their laws in accordance with the advances that were taking place in the matter of adoption.
PROCEDURES FOR ADOPTION
When a person intends to adopt a minor, they must be aware of all those procedures to which they must be exposed during the adoption process. In the first place, those interested in the adoption must submit the application by which they present their desire to adopt in the Service for the Protection of Minors of the Autonomous Community in question.
This previously submitted application must be accompanied by all those documents that prove the personal data of the applicant, such as the birth certificate, the income statement, the possible criminal record that exists or the assets that it has among other documentation. Subsequently, the body in charge of the analysis and collation of the data presented by the applicant, will initiate a preliminary proposal file prior to the adoption in which all the circumstances and personal characteristics of the adopter will be recorded, either at a social and economic level .
AN UNCONVENTIONAL FAMILY LOOKING TO BE ACCEPTED
One of the criticisms that has been carried out the most about the adoption by a gay person has been how the adoptee could be affected by having two men as parents instead of having the classic figure of the father and the mother. A harsh criticism that has been studied by various scientists and professionals reaching the conclusion that those who have been adopted by people of the same sex perform just as well as those who were not in that situation .
More than 25 years of research has contributed to the elimination of this topic or idea, which has shown that there is no type of variation related to the sexual orientation of their parents. In this way, something that has also contributed a lot to the elimination of this idea in our society is the progress it has made in terms of acceptance. A few years ago it was unthinkable that this situation could be accepted without problems and it was even considered a risk that a homosexual person could adopt and raise a person without a female reference, but the truth is that there has been an open mind that has contributed to that a better opinion is promoted regarding this type of adoptions.
