Danny called me that day, frantic. “I found a baby!” he shouted. “I called 911, but I don’t think they believed me. No one’s coming. I don’t want to leave the baby alone. Get down here and flag down a police car or something.” By nature Danny is a remarkably calm person, so when I felt his heart pounding through the phone line, I knew I had to run.

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.”

“Your honor, we’ve been wondering why you asked Danny if he was interested in adopting?”

“I had a hunch,” she just said. “Was I wrong?” And with that she rose from her chair, congratulated us, and exited the courtroom.

We weren’t supposed to be there, two men, with a son we had never dreamed of by our side, getting married by a woman who changed and enriched our lives more than she would ever know. But there we were, thanks to a fateful discovery and a judicious hunch.

Don't you wish there were lots more stories like this one in the news ,in place of the crap politics and horrible violence we usually get ?
We need more judges like the one that played her hunch and gave an abandoned child a loving home .
KUDOs to this judge and the parents of this very lucky young man named Kevin !!!

Their luck was amazing, and I congratulate them from the bottom of my feet, but if they were going to do something amazing like adopting a random baby, for the love of all things saucy, why the f*** did they call him Kevin!?

Are you telling me to shut up or asking me to drop a glove?

Beautiful story but it doesn't seem all that realistic for some reason. Just seems too 'easy' if that makes sense. Not doubting its validity though, just strikes me as odd.

I've heard it said that ' Truth is stranger then fiction'.
I did a quick search with the headline and nothing showed up to say it is fiction.
Since this happened in family court It's doubtful that any of the 'paperwork' would be public record.

It seemed that way to me too. If I was watching this as a movie, I'd be that person saying, "Why didn't he just take the baby to the hospital? Why did he stay in the subway until someone else came? What kind of a judge just offers a kid up for adoption? Can she even do that?"

So many plotholes!

But yeah this story has been all over the internet today from various sites, so I'm assuming it's fairly legit.

Wayyy to many potholes. Either that, or the couple completely a LOT of paperwork, home inspection etc. in a short period of time.

I doubt she just offered the couple a baby. Maybe she offered the baby a "I have 2 daddy's" t-shirt too!
