Gay Dads and Their Four Children Fight DOMA To Keep Their Family Together

Love knows no borders on this or any side of the Earth. Stop the Deportations. Immigration Reform is an LGBT-Straight Issue. Advocate, Educate, Legislate, and Celebrate Love!!!

22 Years After They First Met, Gay Dads and Their Four Children Fight DOMA To Keep Their Family Together « News « STOP THE DEPORTATIONS: The DOMA Project.

We are Mark and Frédéric.

After more than 20 years, four children, and three houses, we are still unsure of our future.

Like any other parents in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where we live, we spend our days taking care of our family, making sure that our children are loved, happy, healthy and are learning the skills and values that will give them the most opportunities for a successful and fulfilling life.

And yet, as much as we have devoted our lives to our family and to each other, we do not enjoy what most families in America take for granted. Despite being legally married, and having become the parents of four wonderful children, our family can be torn apart at any time by my own government because of the Defense of Marriage Act and because of outdated immigration laws.
