My husband and I adopted our daughter 18 years ago. It was an open adoption, and I was lucky enough to be present when she was born. She has been my daughter since her first breath. She has always known she was adopted. We live in a great town with outstanding schools and have provided her with opportunities that she most likely won't have had. More importantly we always let her know how much we love her and how proud we are of her. A year after she was born we were blessed with a son (biological) who we loved just as much. I have always felt very connected to each of them.
A while ago I read that on my daughters facebook page that she hates being adopted. When discussing this with her she said she doesn't believe in adoption and thinks that kids should be raised by their biological parents. Since I am not adopted, I can not fully understand this. Can anyone relate to this??

I'd have to agree with busimoms answer above. Adoption is 2 parts. First, loosing a mother and family- and then- gaining another family.
gaining doesn't erase the loss.

What would happen if one of your mother’s died today and you were told you couldn’t cry, you couldn’t go to the funeral and to make believe she never existed. What would happen to you.
