SCENE OPENS on Leah (Whitney Wright), looking anxious but excited, as she opens the front door of her home. Evelyn (Reagan Foxx), a social worker, politely but warmly greets her, introducing herself. Evelyn is holding a clipboard with papers and a pen. She is there to do an adoption home study and her report is crucial in the adoption process. Leah mentions that her partner, Toni, should be home any minute.
Finally, Toni (Ana Foxxx) arrives home, calling out as she walks in through the front door. Leah excitedly excuses herself from Evelyn and greets Toni with a kiss on the lips. There is warmth and love between them. Evelyn looks shocked for a moment at this PDA. She doesn’t say anything but her expression subtly hardens, her jaw clenching as she scribbles pointedly on her clipboard. Leah cheerfully brings Toni to meet Evelyn.
Evelyn is still polite as she insists that she has everything she needs to make a decision and takes her leave, even if it’s a bit abrupt. Leah and Toni are not aware that anything is amiss, instead thinking that Evelyn’s words and departure mean that she’s had a positive visit. Leah and Toni are excited as Leah gushes to Toni about how well the whole thing went and how she’s sure they’re finally going to have the family they’ve always wanted.
