I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday weekend. This is just a quick post between errands and eating.
Yesterday my local paper (the Seattle Times) featured this story as a part of their holiday fundraising series. It seems to me it is a tribute to the resilience of children and the capacity of people to love and care for children. Sharon Cormier is an admirable parent–to the child she is biologically related to, to the children she has chosen to embrace through adoption, and to the children she raised and is raising as a foster parent. Her’s is in many ways an extraordinary family and reminder to us, I think, that families come in all sorts of shapes and forms. Somehow the law has to be flexible enough to recognize and support that diversity.
