My wife works with a man in his fifties who raised three kids on his own. Worked his ass off. Did a good job. Pretty admirable right? Oh, by the way—they’re not his kids. They’re his sister’s kids. She was in no condition to raise them. Circumstances. As a twenty-something-year-old gay man, he stepped up and took them on as his own. They’re all grown up now. University and so on. They love him. He loves them. Just another happy family.
