    Dr. Stander, I don’t mean to pry into your life but are you adopted? I have a friend from S. Africa that is adopted and doesn’t know any of his history before being adopted. You and he not only resemle each other but mannerisms are the same and both of you share the same love for animals. He would be just like you in most all respects, barefooted and bearded. My friend has worked some of the most dangerous jobs that exit and loved them all. He is a photographer in the British Virgin Islands. It would certainly be uncanny if you are adopted and had a brother you didn’t know about! I would like to know one way or the other just to get peace of mind.

    Thankyou, James Reed
