A baby found abandoned in the subway has become a heart-warming tale being shared online by the masses today. The man who found the infant lying near the turnstile in the subway over a decade ago went on to adopt the child. The little boy became the son of a gay couple after the judge in family court asked the man who found the baby if he’d be interested in adopting the child, according to The Inquistr Saturday, March 2, 2013.
The couple had been together three years when the judge dropped this very enticing offer in the couple’s lap. Fears of not knowing anything about changing diapers or nurturing a child were quickly put aside and the men went with the offer that fate placed in their life.
The story, which was published Thursday in the New York Times “Townies” series, was one that touched the hearts of many. This series covers stories of New Yorker’s lives. The child, named Kevin, stood with his parents 12 years later inside a courtroom as they were married.
The article on how Kevin became part of this happy family was one of the most viral stories from the "Townies" series. The story was written by screenwriter, Peter Mercurio, whose now husband Danny was the man who found the baby. The baby was about a day old when Danny happened upon the child.
He first called his partner to tell him what he happened upon and then the authorities. Danny went to family court the day the abandoned child's fate was being decided by the judge. That trip to court changed the couple's life forever in a way that couldn't have made them happier!
