Get out your handkerchiefs...

...because your going to need them! If you don't somehow shed a tear over this very touching documentary on gay people adopting then you either have no heart or you got ice water in your veins. Me, I was bawling when it came to an end. This does prove that as long as a child is loved and accepted in the home they will grow up into well adjusted adults. It's a shame that more states don't allow gay people to adopt because states are bound by the strident belief in the traditional nuclear family. What makes a family? I believe as I've stated before that a home of people who love and accept their children is what makes a family in my opinion. See Daddy and Papa because it will touch your heart.
