"I have two moms because they love each other and wanted to have a family. My sister and I were born in China. We're not blood related and all that, but we love each other and are one family brought together because of these two people. . . .

"Kids who have grown up around my family are usually nicer because they are not prejudiced about our kind of family. Grown-ups too."

--Ten-year-old Sophie Brescia, who offers Bay Windows her perspective on having two moms and being one of two siblings (not blood-related) adopted from China

I believe that family is really about love, community, and commitment. I totally plan to adopt in the future, no matter who I marry.
