Since the passing of Steve Jobs yesterday many sources have used the opportunity to share snippets of his life. The best, by most accounts, is the speech Jobs gave at Stanford. The Speech was an outline of his life into three stories.
The first story was the story of a mother giving up her child. I’m not going to speculate on the reasons, that information might be out there, but I haven’t seen it. But for whatever reason the mother gave him up.
He was then adopted by a family after first being rejected by another who wanted a girl. No one knows how the life of Steve Jobs could have been different if not for these two acts.
