We Are Dad
In Response To: Why Doesn't White Adopt Black ()
Dear Adoption Forum:
One of the most moving films that I've ever seen is a documentary broadcast on SHOWTIME NETWORKS entitled "We are Dad"
It's the story about two white men who want to adopt their three African American and two white foster children who are HIV Positive. The men are a gay couple.
Their first four foster children (one died) were unwanted black HIV babies. These two men have done an incredible job IN raising thse children.
The film shows photos of little black babies languishing in their hospital cribs, unloved and unwanted. The images will break your heart.
No one complained about these loving men and their foster children until one of the HIV children became HIV negative. The state of Florida and conservative" family values" advocates then wanted to take this child (now a teenager) away from them.
The link below will take you to the showtime broadcast schedule:
The main link below will take you to NPR's interview and video clip.
Please watch this moving story about loving parents and their beloved children.
