I don't know if any one HERE has caught the TNT show, THE WOOL CAP, which ran all of Sunday night. It was a wonderfully touching show about family, regardless of what constitutes that mix.
I went to the TNT website to read up about it, after viewing, and found this inspirational quote about the show from William H. Macy. It pretty much sums up what so many posters on this thread are talking about....love is love, no matter what race/sex/age is involved.
""In Macy's version, Gigot, a building superintendent who wants only to be left alone, and Lou, the suddenly motherless black girl, get off a rocky start together -- but ultimately they become a true family. "I think the long and the short of it, the lesson to be taken from The Wool Cap... (is that) it's families come in all different shapes and sizes and colors these days. And I think it's time for us to take a new look at what is a family. Because they're not all Norman Rockwell paintings."
