    This funny notion I will not forget. Thank you for pointing it out. "would they be the top half or bottom half?"

    I'd take it a step farther: Another case might be when your mother and her first husband adopted you and were the first and only parents you knew, but now your mother has a second husband. It's a whole difference role for your mom's second husband.

    Half of our DNA is our mothers and our fathers. We're only half our parents sons or daughters, just as those we call our half brothers or sisters. I wouldn't call anyone my half sibling. That's literally impossible. which half is your sibling?
