I found the following AP story over on MSNBC.com this morning. Seems that gay couples adopting and successfully raising children is natural afterall.

Two male Humboldt penguins cautiously guard the entrance to their cave in the “Zoo am Meer” zoological park in Bremerhaven, northern Germany.
BERLIN – A German zoo says a pair of gay male penguins are raising a chick from an egg abandoned by its parents.
Bremerhaven zoo veterinarian Joachim Schoene says the egg was placed in the male penguins’ nest after its parents rejected it in late April. The males incubated it for some 30 days before it hatched and have continued to care for it. The chick’s gender is not yet known.
Schoene said the male birds, named Z and Vielpunkt, are one of three same-sex pairs among the zoo’s 20 Humboldt penguins that have attempted to mate.
