Adult Child Estrangement Is Much Like An Adoptive Child Wondering Why They Were Put Up For Adoption

AUDIO VERSION: (For those who prefer to listen.  Transcript below but, may differ ever so slightly from Audio version) First of all, let it be said that under NO circumstances am I saying that Adoption issues are the same as Child Estrangement issues.  They are 2 different animals.  One child has no choice while the...
