We Are Dad follows the lives of one family; two white gay pediatric nurses and their family of five foster children—a family has an abundance of both love and complications. Four of the foster children have AIDS. Three are black. Two come from a backwater cult in Oregon. And the whole family has been in the middle of one of the most hotly debated issues in the country—LGBTQ adoption.
