Thanks to the author and artist, Mike Peters, of "Mother Goose and Grimm," one of my favorite comic strips.
I am going to find a way to get this printed on a tee shirt! If anyone should ever stop to wonder why so many adopted people have that feeling of being a bit "out of place," this should explain it.
You cannot imprint your genetic and family heritage on a child, no matter what your hopes, when adopting, might be. What I wonder is, where is the mother giraffe and what was done to force her to surrender her baby? And I wonder if the cartoonist purposely gave the adopted giraffe that bewildered expression?
I wonder, most of all, if the female kangaroo's name is Angelina? It would make sense. 'Nuff said.
