I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

'A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS' FEATURES GAY DAD'S ADOPTION STORY





CBS' long-running holiday special A Home for the Holidays for the first time in its history featured a gay dad's adoption story.

The 16th annual special, broadcast Friday, featured uplifting stories about families who have adopted children from foster care.
One segment featured Rich Valenza, who became a single father when he adopted 5-year-old Zack and his 4-year-old sister, Emmary.

“I heard that they had been living homeless and had been malnourished. When I went for my first meeting, I remember that the foster mother called for the kids and they came out so cautiously and they were so frail,” an emotional Valenza said.

“And we sat and we played. … And, I don't know, they just stole my heart at that time,” he said.

Later, Valenza met his partner, Jared Glee, and the four became a family.


“He was really fun to hang out with and I love talking to him,” Emmary said of Glee.
