Meeting with old highschool classmate


Yesterday I met with R.S., an old classmate of mine from Killarney High.  He has been working in the film business for several years and is currently involved in film distribution.  He and his husband have also adopted a young son.  He likes to describe it as a match of opposites – a gay male couple adopting a child from “conservatives” in Alberta.  Talking to R was a treat as he has an upbeat and creative personality.  His eyes sparkle as he talks about his young son, describing him as an absolute “angel”, but only when asleep!  He recommended that I speak with AFA BC – Adoptive Families association of BC and the Family Services Adoption Branch at 7th & Fir.  Armed with that information, and the name of a documentary filmmaker friend of his, along with a possibility of film promotion upon my return , I felt very empowered indeed.
