Not I.  Action #844 just showed up in my mailbox, so it looks like it'll be a month or so until I read #845.

-Lois and Clark make a huge decision

I haven't read the issue yet, but I'm going to speculate that the "huge decision" is the one alluded to by the current forum banner.  I hope they adopt the kid, I hope it's permanent and not a gimmick, and here's why:

We're in the future and it's time for future stuff to start happening - like Superman being married to Lois and them having a son.  A real Superman Family.

An adopted son addresses Mr. Niven's Woman of Kleenex concern, but it does much more than that.  With the original Return to Krypton story, and through the Bottle City of Kandor era, Superman has always felt an incredible sense of loss about Krypton and about his Kryptonian family.  An adopted Kryptonian child really brings closure and healing to that issue, and allows Superman to emotionally merge his Kryptonian heritage and family with his Earth heritage and family in a healthy way.  I really want to see Superman help a growing boy learn about his powers and see the legacy continue.  I want to see Superman be a father - and be a good one at that.
