My uncle adopted two of his kids, everyone treats them the same and to be honest even if the family is Irish and they are Korean we kind of forget they are any different to the point that I had to think if I even knew anyone who was adopted
yes they try to do it so you don't know but you do
Absolutely NOT! Not for me anyway. First adopted a girl. A newborn. She was so tiny and I felt so inadequate. But she is still my sweet.
Second was my son. At a year old his parents surrendered him being the doctor found signs of abuse. No questions were asked. We were called and were told of the abuse. Did I still want him? YES YES Definitely! When can we come see him.
My parents felt no different towards neither of my children. My sister on the other hand somewhat rejected him and refused to let him play with her son... to which I know for a fact HE was verbally abused by her.
Back to my sister... she still to this day, more than 30 years later tells me I would have had a better relationship with them had I given birth.
"What a crock of donkey feathers! These ARE my kids. And if I hear you ever insinuate they aren't I will never speak to you again!"
I suppose you need to accept that parents as well as grand parents have their favorites.
I don't have favorites. But I don't realy feel that close as they are far away and I don't see my grandchildren that often. My daughter has 3 boys. My son has 1 daughter.
I think too I don't want to get too close because it will hurt when I leave and cannot see them for a time. It hurts less.
As an adopted child, I was treated as good, if not better, than any kid could have been treated. I had loving grand parents. I guess I'm lucky.
I hope you have pointed that out to them. Your little on is every much yours as if he was born naturally to you.
Tell her bullshit. That's usually a pretty strong response :)
That's just petty. I'd have punched the biddy by now.
I've seen that happen.
I would say definitely that parents treat a natural born child of their own a lot differently than an adopted child no question about it
I never really thought about it, so I couldn't say. Sorry...
I have heard about it and it aggravates me.
If I ever would adopt, the kid won't have that problem from my parents cause we have discussed about it a few times.
