Adoption Makes People REAL Parents

I think adoptive parents are REAL parents so when asking someone who is adopted if they know their real parents it is offensive. Ask adoptive children if they know their biological parents since it is more sensitive and FAR less offensive! I was adopted (at 5 years old) and my mother who adopted me is and ALWAYS will be my REAL mother! As my mother has always said “You may not have been born in my womb but you were born in my heart!”.

Awww, I love that. She was the one who was there to love, care and nurture you throughout your life and made you who you are today. Nothing can EVER replace that. Just because someone births you doesn't make them a mother. And same thing for fathers, I know from first hand experience. My husband has been a father to all of my children and the older kids just had donors unfortunately. It's one thing to create and birth a child it's another thing all together to truly love and BE there.
