4 February 2003 | by (Lexington, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This movie made me sick! Why? In at least three states in this country, perfectly decent and loving gay men and women are prohibited from adopting children. Many of these children end up languishing in orphanages or foster care for years, when they could have a perfectly happy and healthy homes with the kind of wonderful gay parents portrayed in this movie. Laws prohibiting gays from adoption, or de facto discrimination against them in the adoption process, are especially shameful in light of the well-established fact that the majority of child abusers are in fact self-identified heterosexuals, unlike the terrific gay moms and dads in this beautiful movie.

So, see "Daddy and Papa", and then make sure to support gay adoption rights in your state!
