The Found Child
We’ve all heard the adage “finders, keepers.” But does that tenet apply when the found object is an abandoned baby on a bus stop bench, and the keepers two affluent gay men who have always wanted a child? Award winning author Lucy Jane Bledsoe expertly blurs the lines between what’s right and what’s necessary, especially when it comes to two loving parents who want to do the right thing, but are also determined to protect their only child.
