So many of us have our what ifs?  What if I’d taken that job offer?  What if we bought that other house?  What if I’d spent more time doing (fill in the blank) growing up?

It’s natural to wonder about the road not taken; adopted kids often wonder about an entire existence not taken.  Join us tomorrow to talk about the what ifs of adoption.

Many adopted kids find themselves straddling two worlds – the one they live in physically, and the one circling around in their mind.

I can see how easy falling into this trap would be.  It’s the ultimate Minority Report set up. (Haven’t seen the movie?  You can wiki-read about it here.)  Living in one reality, having visions of what your alternate reality would be if you were living with your birthparents…that would be enough to twist me up for a while.
