"Matt and Blue: Adopting as a Same-Sex Couple": short film on male gay couple adoption in Arizona since Obergefell

Peace to the World: Matt and Blue: Adopting as a Same-Sex Couple.”

A young male couple (both late 20s) in Jordan AZ (near where the Mogollon Rim starts, I think), reasonably stable with a desert home and jobs,  describes how they adopted a son (shown once).  They had to take any person given to them at one point, and have the child live with them for six months.  They had to deal with a legal battle (despite Obergefell) as to whether both men could be legal parents, or whether one was a stepparent.

They also discussed the need for foster parents.

They also interviewed another male couple in Arizona, Kevin and David, who appeared to have three kids.

I’ve been in the Phoenix area many times, visited Tonopah for “Understanding” conventions with Dan Fry back in the 1970s, and am familiar with Flagstaff, Sedona, the northern plateau and Grand Canyon, and even the Painted Desert.  I once visited Heber, the site of Travis Walton’s supposed UFO abduction. But I don’t know if I’ve been near where this couple seems to live.
