Storyline

A thought provoking documentary essaying the struggles of two gay men, Steve Lofton and Roger Croteau, who've been a couple for more than 18 years, to maintain their family of five foster children, who have been labeled "undesirable" by the State of Florida's Department of Children and Families. Their patchwork family runs the gamut of age and race, from two blond tykes to three mixed race African American teens, and all five have tested HIV-positive. When when the oldest child undergoes an HIV seroconversion from positive to negative, the state relabels him "desirable," and thus "adoptable," and the family risks losing him forever.

GOD Blessed us with the Roger and Stevens of the World
9 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was absolutely amazed, as I sat down to look at the documentary. It made me want to immediately get up and travel to Florida, so I could offer my assistance.

This story of Roger and Steven goes a long way in smashing the myth that gay couples are ill equipped to offer children the care, nurturing and role modeling necessary to insure that they grow up to be healthy men and women.

I am a 54 year old African American and this story made me feel ashamed of some of my views on whites adopting black children. In spite of the racists actions and attitudes they obviously face constantly, they will not be broken. They are truly dedicated to the well being of the kids. I am now ready and willing to admit that I could only hope to be half the parent that these two gentlemen have become.

Their unconditional love for these children is truly inspiring. Their willingness to take responsibility for these children, that unfortunately started life off with a major illness and/or various addictions. These men are truly a blessing from GOD! They are role models for all of us, if we have the ability to open our hearts and eyes enough to imagine the condition these children would be in if it weren't for Steven and Roger.

Words cannot express how impressed I am, so I will stop trying.

GOD Bless you Roger and Steven and I know that GOD is watching over you and the children.

MY LOVE GOES OUT TO YOU GUYS AND THE PEOPLE THAT MADE THIS DOCUMENTARY POSSIBLE! Lonnie F Wilson
