A Strong Reaction

As we get to know the <new> characters in Mark Trail, it would seem that family is a trigger point for all of them so far…

Based on today’s installment, Rusty appears to be fully aware of his adopted status, it would seem, so what’s the crisis brewing with Doc, aka Poppy? But I would imagine that this is a challenge for many adopted children- knowing from whence they come… beyond the emotional, there is the practical. What am I prone to medically? What do I need to be aware of?

So, Cherry snaps at Rusty as he dismisses the idea that he has a family… complete with eye-roll in the middle panel… maybe now is the time to have that “Discussion?”
