Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

Adaptive Weight Gain?!

Women have cravings and gain weight when they are pregnant. Men gain “sympathy weight” when their partner is pregnant and this has been proven scientifically - “Dr. Toni Ziegler, senior scientist at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, has shown that male marmoset and tamarin monkeys gain weight when their partners are pregnant." The question I have is...

Where is the research about adaptive weight gain for adoptive moms?!
