*To be fair, adoption comes up quite a lot in my conversations - partly because a few of my best friends are adopted and partly because
P.S. How is it that I spent 18 years not knowing ANYONE my age who had more than 1 sibling and now most of my closest friends come from large families? Most of my friends all have at least 3-10 brothers or sisters - two come from families of 8 children and two come from families of 11. The other two come from families with 4 and 5 kids. I have one other close friend who only has one sibling like me :-P I can honestly say that (at least in my experience) my friends who have grown up in large families are some of the most interesting, intelligent, and awesome people I have ever met.
