We Are Dad
We Are Dad is a 2005 documentary film chronicling the story of two male pediatric AIDS nurses who have taken in a number of HIV positive infants as their foster parents. The film outlines the couple's struggle to provide a stable and loving home to their children. When one child, who tested HIV-positive at birth, is discovered to be HIV negative, the state of Florida determined that the child should be adopted, but refused to allow his foster parents, a gay couple, to adopt him. The fight over this decision thrust this family into the center of the debate over gay adoption.
