New York – The story of a baby abandoned in a subway and raised by the man who found him and his partner is being turned into a play. As reported by The Inquisitr, screenwriter Peter Mercurio wrote about the story of how his partner found the child and his later being adopted by the gay couple in a New York Times feature Thursday.
Mercurio is quoted in the report as writing of their being asked if they wanted to adopt the baby, “In three years as a couple, we had never discussed adopting a child. Why would we? … Even if our financial and logistical circumstances had been different, we knew how many challenges gay couples usually faced when they want to adopt.
“But here was fate, practically giving us a baby. How could we refuse? Eventually, my fearful mind spent, my heart seized control to assure me I could handle parenthood”
As noted in the report, the couple married 12 years later.
