Cari Searcy lives in Mobile Alabama with her wife Kim and their son Khaya. Because of Alabama’s discriminatory Sanctity of Marriage Amendment and the federal law, Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Cari is not a legal parent of Khaya, in spite of numerous attempts at adoption.
Cari is producing a documentary about their plight, and has released this video ahead of the film release.
Their story is not over and they are pursuing other options in their effort to complete their family relationships.
The film web site is I Am a Parent.
