Betty Jean Lifton, Journey of the Adopted Self

"...Adoptees are usually shadowed by a pet of some kind, more than likely of unknown origins. They tend to identify with animals, perhaps because they share some state of grace that is outside the human condition... The live or stuffed animal grazes loyally in the interstices between them and the rest of the world... adoptees, of all ages, have live and inanimate animals to accompany them through life."
