Good Sunday Stories

Posted By on Sun, Nov 19, 2006 at 12:58 PM

Here's two I managed to read this morning.

The Long Way Home comes from the Rutland Herald/Times Argus. It's a story about Vermonter Michelle Kennedy, author of Without a Net: Middle Class and Homeless (With Kids) in America. Here's Kevin O'Connor's hard-to-resist first sentence:

The story’s strange but true: A Vermont girl finds success as aCongressional page and college freshman, then gets married at 19, hasthree children by 25 — and suddenly finds herself single and homeless,raising her family in a car.

And from the New York Times Sunday Magazine — Gay Donor or Gay Dad?, an interesting exploration of how gay and lesbian couples create families together. I can relate, though our son's donor is a straight guy who has kids of his own now. I read the story in print this morning, jumping off the couch intermittently to keep 9-month-old Graham from eating the loose ceramic tiles in the bathroom.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
