i’ve always wanted to adopt one day, but i really no idea where I would start that process. on top of that, some LGBTQ+ people face unique challenges when trying to go through the adoption process – which fascinates and frustrates me, because at the end of the day, hopefully the goal should be to give kids the best home with the most loving parents, possible. i had the best time meeting both families, to hear their adoption stories and witness the power of lgbtq+ adoption. enjoy! please like, share and subscribe 🙂

  14. Personally, I’ve always wanted to adopt, whether I marry a man or a woman, and I’ve always wanted to adopt older kids to give them a chance in the system again. Stories of adoption are so inspiring and amazing and hearing these ones made me really happy.

  25. You are amazing Tyler. You did a really nice thing.

  26. ADOPTION IS AMAZING AND HOW HARD IT IS FOR QUEER PEOPLE IS UNFAIR AND THANK YOU FOR SHINING LIGHT ON THIS???

  27. Tyler, this is so important. You don’t know how much this means to so many people. Personally, I grew up being afraid to be myself because I wanted a family. And I didn’t even realize that being gay and having a family was an option that was available to me. But seeing real, beautiful, thriving families raised by queer parents gives me hope and so much joy. Thank you for this.
