Initially

IOur genes identify us as related to specific others. Generations build and break tradition. Sometimes we live out of order within our lifetimes.

Siblings raise siblings. Grandparents raise their grandchildren. Society raises those whose ascendants cannot or will not raise them. Society. Structured fostering, adopting, juvinile imprisoning—and the darker element of entrapping.

We initially are born to specifics. When we explore family history, there are sequences that impose order; I, II, III; Sr., Jr. Then the break is slight and deliberate.

The first names are all different. The last names are the same. Two middle names match and the other is different, but it is the same as one of the first names above it. Paternal patterns.
