We are going to be doing a science experiment around these parts. First, we must formulate a hypothesis. If a goose hatches a duck egg and thinks that the little baby is her gosling, will the bird grow up to be more duck-like because of its nature ... or will it grow up to be more goose-like because of its nurture.
It reminds me of a favorite book in our house: A Blessing from Above which details the story of a kangaroo that adopts a little blue bird.
As an adoptive-family, I am constantly amazed by the lessons I witness and could give on nature vs. nature.
Here's the truth: there are things my son that does not share my DNA does that remind me so much of his birthmother. A movement he makes. A facial expression. A look.
And then, he'll do something that makes me think: he's definitely a Kitsteiner.
And now, we will have the opportunity to see how this works with ducks and geese!
