Green Light This Video on Gay Adoptive Families

Most of you know that my nephews, Adie & Nate are in a two father household. I love my boys and can't imagine the Reinhardt-Miller home without toys and diapers and the pitter patter of both furry feet and little bitty human ones. When Frederick sent me the following email, I had to blog about it. Please read and follow the link to view the video. Too often homosexuals are seen as deviant freaks since television crews want the more attention grabbing fringe folks to up their ratings. I'd like nothing more than to show the world that a home with two daddies or two mommies is a loving, safe environment not unlike the traditional nuclear family.

From Freddy:
Susan Griffith, the woman who runs our "Dads Group" was recently interviewed by John Ireland for a documentary he filmed about gay adoptive families. He's submitted it to a project on the web that will get to actually make it to television if there is enough support for the video. Basically, the video has to be "green-light(ed)".

You can view the quick 8 minute video at You'll notice below the video there is a banner that says something like "green light this video". If you click on the link, you'll have to fill out a very quick registration page before your vote will count. You'll also have to go BACK to the video to click on the banner again to make your vote count.

I think it's extremely important to get a video of this nature shown on national television to put a face to the name "gay family". It will, perhaps, show people that our family is not that much different from their own. Any support your willing to give would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, folks. Please take a few moments to register, view and vote to green light this video!
