Can you get a take-back or a mulligan on this one: “Mr Roberts grew up in Rockford, Illinois but didn’t know he was adopted until his sister told him at age 10. Despite his adoptive father telling him “nothing good” would come of discovering who his real parents were, Mr Roberts used a social services agency to locate his mother, Terry. She confirmed Mr Roberts was adopted and told him his birth name was Lawrence Alexander but would not reveal the last name.”
I would certainly add this to my “it could be worse” repetoire. As in: you know it could be worse, Charles Manson could be your dad. It’s all about perspective.
