Good Sunday Stories

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.
