Side by Side

    Melissa dropped into a chair in front of her manager's cherry veneer desk. 'I don't know how people with kids can do this job,' the 25-year-old radio advertising sales rep said.

    Her boss, Laurie Thompson, had heard such self-doubt before. Her six salespeople at Connoisseur Media in Erie often popped into her office to give vent to their A22 ................. about a tough day of cold-calling.

    Laurie nodded. She didn't have children, A23 .................  herself instead to a sales career, running marathons, cycling, sailing and spending time with her husband. 'I don't think I'll ever have kids, though that would really disappoint my parents,' Melissa said.

    'Why? Because you're A24 .................  only child?' Laurie asked. Melissa said her parents would be disappointed because they A25 .................  for grandkids. Then she added, almost as an afterthought, 'I was adopted.' From the time she was tiny, Melissa knew that she was adopted.

    Her new parents were always open with their daughter about where she came from. Along the way, Melissa grew A26 .................  to questions from people who had learnt she was adopted. So she wasn't at all A27 .................  about answering her boss that afternoon.

    'Have you ever had a desire to meet your real parents?' Laurie asked.

    'Not really,' Melissa said. 'It's not that I don't want to. It's just that I haven't got around to it. And I don't feel like I'm missing anything. My parents are wonderful.'

    Melissa laughed and was about to leave when Laurie asked her another question.

   'When were you born?'

   'April 14, 1981.' Then, feeling she'd taken A28 .................  enough of her boss's time, Melissa said goodbye and headed home.
