Comebacks when someone asks if you can love your adopted child as much as a biological child. Check out our parenting comebacks. www.ishouldhavesaid.net.

For some reason, adoption brings out curiosity in people and they forget to respect boundaries when asking adoptive parents questions. One of the questions parents are asked is “Does it bother you that the adopted child won’t be your own?”

Adoption and giving birth to your own child are different ways of creating a family, one is through your DNA and the other through your heart, both create a family. The love that you feel for your child is pure and real, there is nothing different about it. Add Angelina Jolie quote that there is no difference.

You don’t have to give birth to somebody to have a family, we are all extended family. – Sandra Bullock

A family isn't made of blood it's made of love.

Blood makes you related, Love makes you family.
