I can't imagine being taken away from my home and family and told I can never return. Can you? But that's what we’re doing: ripping families apart. And then making it so that they can't legally be put back together. These are real people — and there are thousands more like them — whose lives have been turned upside down by our inability to figure out this issue.

Are there really people who still argue that our system isn’t broken? How many more of these stories have to be told before we see real change?
