And y'all are crazy if you attack this family based on what you claim is the "best interest of the child".

Yesterday, after news broke that Malta's court had given the go-ahead for the first adoption of a child by a same-sex couple, Malta's Facebook exploded.

Many praised the move as a huge leap forward for Malta, while others rambled on about the doom and gloom this would bring about; flinging around the classic arguments the anti-adoption camp always do (something about it being "unnatural" and "not in the child's best interest").

But you know who doesn't seem to care about all these online, all-caps arguments? Ben.

Meet Ben, the first child to be adopted by a same-sex couple in Malta. His father, Kris Grima, posted a touching introduction on Facebook, where he thanked everyone for the work they did leading to this beautiful moment, while subtly slamming the nay-sayers judging his family without even knowing anything about them. 

You'll be hard pressed to find a happier looking baby or one who rocks a white bucket-hat as well as Ben. So congrats to this new family, and in the words of Kris himself, may many more follow!
