Open note on adoption (with a particular Scot in mind)

My brother and I both came forth from the same womb and are really different. In a million ways. With regards to nature vs. nurture, I've long been on the side of the nurture argument. That said, there are clinical issues that I will always worry about. I mean, you don't go to a doctor without filling out a family history questionnaire.

But, I've had some caffeine and am over my pity party. As the hopefully soon to be senator from Minnesota would say: it's all just stinkin' thinkin'. I am the mother of a happy, healthy little girl. And it behooves no one to wallow in worry.
