What a Choice


Apple guru Steve Jobs was adopted as a child. In the early 80s he set out to find his birth mother, even hiring a private detective for the task.

The reason? Jobs explained:

"To see if she was OK and to thank her, because I’m glad I didn’t end up as an abortion," he said. "She was 23 and she went through a lot to have me."

Jobs did locate his birth mother. He said that after they met she would often burst into tears and apologize for giving him up for adoption.

"Don’t worry," he told her. "I had a great childhood. I turned out OK."
