"As a child in foster care, I dreamed about being part of a family, and of being raised in a loving home with a house filled of siblings, traditions and all the love one could handle. It did not matter what labels society put on them — Latino, black, white, straight, gay, single, married — what mattered was the love in their hearts. All that mattered is that we would be family, forever."
