Head line:On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents, daily.
Wiki answers: 1 out of 8 babies are given to the wrong parents.
(My logic to the Wiki answers is how can it be 1 out of 8. If one is wrong, there must be two, right? Or am I losing my logic?)
(Reckon it was safer when the babies were born at home, even if the mama didn't like them there was none to trade for!)
Okay, anyway, how would you know if you are given the wrong child? After fifteen years, would you care?
My answer to that is, “ only if the wrong one was turning out to be some kind of weirdo.” If he was a great kid certainly I would rather keep him/her because by then we are attached. This is my kid, wrong, adopted, or just slipped in! LOL
I was sure Sherry got the right sons at first, but there were times I was sure they belonged to some mafia type! (Hahaha!) Right now, I think the younger son should be sent back to Jay Leno or someone.
It is hard to accept the cards dealt by life. (Not sure God appreciates that example, but I think HE understands what I am saying) But we as humans don’t have much choice. ‘Y’ (Yevette, of ‘Our Tennessee Mountain Home”) has a statement in her profile I like. “"Life is what happens when you're making other plans." But still I plan...”
Ain’t it the truth!
I had a cousin who was prone to say, “Jackie don’t belong to any parents.”
I kept thinking, even a chicken had to lay the egg for a chick to be hatched; we all have parents, somewhere! (I think sometimes mama thought she may have sat the wrong egg!)
Thanks for reading this drivel.
