Children scare me.* And yet I imagine some day having my own. Presumably my perspective will have changed by that time.
While driving recently, children were on my mind. And so was adoption. It's probably the first time I honestly asked myself the question, could adoption play a role in my future life?
I think it probably could.
*though not as terribly as worms; children do not generally evoke the same girlish screams of terror, full-body tremors, and irrational dread of stepping on them. Not usually, anyway.
