This one's gonna be short and sweet..... a quickie if you will.  My blogging friend Mark needs our support.  You may recall that I've blogged before about Mark, his partner of 20+ years Fred, and their four beautiful children.
 They have adopted these four beautiful children, but now their family could be separated because of Fred's citizenship status and our country's DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act).  Please check out Mark's blog here and join in writing to our government on their behalf. 

In 2012, I have a hard time understanding why we need such legislation as the DOMA, who are we really defending, all the straight people that have done such a great job preserving the sanctity of marriage.... I think not!!!!  Please help out by writing, calling, or e-mailing if you can.  I know they'll appreciate your support.

Looks like a pretty "normal" family to me!!!! If there really 
is such a thing!!!!

In case you missed it, here's the link to Mark's blog Our Simple Lives.
Thanks again for your support..... I will now step down from my soap box!

Peace!  Kent
Sorry.... had to do one more pic!

Kent, good morning!
Thank you so much for this. I'm sure that the majority of Americans, or people from wherever, do not know that this could even happen in 2012. But yes, even though the Government has made both Fred and myself the legal parents of our children, they would still go ahead and separate us.
Our application for a Green Card was denied a couple of weeks ago. We are now in the Appeals process and I have no idea how long that takes. So, we continue to live as well as we can and try to keep the stress away from the children.
Thanks again for getting the word out there and I would be thrilled to pieces if people would write on our behalf.
Thank you, Friend.
