When I am old and grey I'm hoping one of my kids will want me to live with them and take care of their children, make some meals and do a bit of housework, knit by the fire on a long winters night. I can't imagine either of them putting me out in the cold! I certainly hope I would receive the same love and care from an adopted family but who knows, we are so selfish these days. As with all of life, you pays your money and you takes your chances I suppose.
