Summary
Chronicles the story of Steven Lofton and Roger Croteau and their extended family of five foster children. Back in the 80s, these two pediatric AIDS nurses took in four African American infants with HIV whom nobody wanted, and fostered them as their own. One child was born HIV positive, but at age 3 he tested HIV negative, and the state of Florida reclassified him as adoptable. As Florida is the only state with a blanket ban on gay adoption, this disqualified the family. The case of Lofton v. State of Florida, which challenged Florida's ban on adoption by gay couples, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which refused to hear the case and let the Florida law stand
