Today in Other People’s Lives

I’m feeling painfully anti-social today, so here’s an article about a gay couple who found their son in the subway:

Three months later, Danny appeared in family court to give an account of finding the baby. Suddenly, the judge asked, “Would you be interested in adopting this baby?” The question stunned everyone in the courtroom, everyone except for Danny, who answered, simply, “Yes.”

“But I know it’s not that easy,” he said.

People are forever more complicated and more wonderful than we give them credit for.
