They met through a mutual friend and reconnected after the friend's passing. Brook, who is transgender, and Sam, who identifies as AFAB pansexual, navigated their relationship while raising Sam’s three children from previous relationships.

Despite the obstacles, they remain hopeful and determined to have a child together. Their story highlights the complexities and joys of blended families and the resilience of love.
"I'm still coming out all the time. And it's hard because there's some sort of level of shame that you have, that the new generation just doesn't have, they're just like, “This is who I am. And this is me, take it or leave it.” But, our generation… there's still some shame behind it, so it's hard." - Brook
