In 2001, Daniel was heading to the New York City subway to get to his diner date with his partner Peter, when he walked past the turnstiles and saw what he perceived as a baby doll. However, when he took a closer look at the baby doll Daniel saw its legs were moving. Daniel discovered a day-old baby boy with his umbilical cord still attached. Someone actually left their day-old baby in a subway station! Daniel made sure the baby was “okay” and dialed 911.

A few months later, in family court, no one had claimed the baby. So the judge asked Daniel and Peter a life-altering question: “if they would like to adopt the baby?”. The couple said “yes”, and gave the baby a future.
