Adoption law is supposed to be based on the best interests of the child. I made this short film when I discovered an issue a lot of gay couples must face when trying to adopt a child. While many states will allow gay couples to adopt children, they will only do so if one person out of that couple adopts as a single parent. In the eyes of the law, that second parent is not recognized. What if the adopting parent looses their job and benefits and that second parent ends up wanting to put their child on their health insurance? What happens if the child has to be hospitalized while the adopting parent is out of town? What happens if the adopting parent dies?
A lot of talented Asheville folks helped make this movie possible working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Thank you for your support and for giving your time to help make this short film happen.
