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.

Foster gay parents fighting hypocrisy to adopt their foster HIV kids who nobody else wanted
25 June 2005 | by marthadesouzaSee all my reviews

By chance I had the honor to see We Are Dad. It totally changed my mind regarding adoptive gay parents. I grew up with the (wrong) notion (given to me by the adults around me) that gay parents couldn't provide a healthy medium for a developing child to be raised in. Come on! How many nuclear families screwed up their kids. And these two gay guys are the best. After seeing it and pondering about it I am a lot more inclined to be all for gay marriage and adoption by gay parents. I am really glad I saw this factual film. It opened my eyes, mind, and heart. I recommend to anyone to see it. You will have more facts with this documentary on which to base your opinions so you can also give it established on some ground and not only on discrimination and narrowness of mind like I did.
