Summary
One of the underlying objections to gay marriages is the concern about them raising children. Will the children be raised to be gay themselves? Is there a risk of sexual abuse? What about gender role models? We Are Family takes a look at what life is really like in homosexual families, with the focus on parenting and the well being of the children. In one family, two gay fathers tell of their efforts to create a secure environment for their 16-year-old foster son who was on the road to delinquency. In another household, two lesbian mothers have helped their adopted 11-year-old boy overcome the emotional trauma of disability and early neglect. In the third family, we hear how two adolescent daughters have accepted their father s homosexuality. By seeing how much these parents have to offer their children, we realize that good parenting is independent of sexual orientation
