Today, our series on the family continues with the question: What makes a family work? And what constitutes a family unit? Farai Chideya talks with Terrance Heath, one of a growing number of gay men who are adopting children.

Heath writes a blog called The Republic of T. He and his partner live in Chevy Chase, Md. They adopted their five-year-old son, Parker, when he was less than a week old.
