Remember that ultra-moving tearjerker from Expedia—the short film that follows a dad’s journey in accepting his lesbian daughter? The heartwarming viral video, which will be honored by Adage  in April, helped changed the lives of at least one real-world same-sex couple, Nikki Weiss-Goldstein and Jill Sloane-Goldstein, of “Real L Word’ fame. While the television show followed Nikki and Jill to the altar, another challenge arose after their marriage: What legal rights does Nikki have to Jill’s daughter? In case something happened to Jill, Nikki would have no legal rights to look over her daughter. Their only option: adoption. When a woman from the agency came to their home for a visit, she asked the two ladies what their families thought of their relationship/family. Nikki knew how to properly convey how they felt. She showed them the Expedia commercial.

After the jump find out what Nikki had to say via Facebook about the situation and how the adoption lady reacted…
