    There have been plenty of "successful adoption" stories in the media, particularly of people who went on to become celebrities (I can think of half a dozen or so in figure skating alone, starting with Scott Hamilton).

    Happy families, though, as Tolstoy pointed out, are pretty much alike. And they're not news. (Tolstoy didn't bother to write about happy families, they weren't interesting enough to him.)

    So yeah, we need all sides of the story/stories, in all versions - the successes and the failures and the just-scraped-bys.

    Only then will we have some idea what we're talking about.

    If it's
    Not your body,
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    And it's
    None of your damn business!
