My brother and his wife adopted a brother and sister last year. The girl is turning three this year a month after my son turns three and the boy will be turning two near the end of the year. I'm so happy for my brother and i'm really happy to be an aunt again. Both kids know me as their aunt. The oldest calls me auntie. Well i was telling one of my friends a funny story about my niece and my friend looked at me and said because my niece is adopted i'm not her aunt and i never will be. I told my friend that i understand my niece and nephew have a biological family but they never knew their family and no matter what happen they will always be my niece and nephew i love them just as much as i love my biological nieces. but it really bothered me that my friend told me that i wasn't their aunt because they were adopted.

That's outrageous. You are her Aunt because your sister adopted her and you always will be. Some people are so bloody ignorant.
