Another great Retrieval Artist story

This Retrieval Artist story can stand on its own, but for those familiar with the series will be glad to see several familiar characters.

Without giving too much away, the story's focus is a young boy who is adopted when his parents have to disappear, and the conflict between the adopted parents and biological parents when they reappear. The crux of the story being what does it mean to be true parents.
