One of the best days in Dana Nessel’s life was Friday, June 26.
Four years earlier, two nurses came to her in despair. They were a committed, loving same-sex couple, who wanted to jointly adopt the three special needs children they had raised as foster parents.
But though the State of Michigan was happy with them as foster parents, it wouldn’t let them jointly adopt.
Nessel was cautioned by traditional liberal groups not to take this on, warned that a loss would set back same-sex rights for years, but she filed a federal lawsuit anyway.
