I was reading the post "Do you know what an adoptee desires most of all?" In the post it focused on the on going title battle of "MOM". I am wondering do you ( aparents ) consider your child's bparents their other "parents", and for bparents do you still consider yourself your bchild's "other" parent? I know as an adoptee, I consider my aparents my parents ( I have met my bioparents but I don’t consider them my parents at all). I am also an adoptive mom and I see me and my hubby as our achild's “true/only" parents. What do you all thing? Do you see your achild's bparents as the "other/equal" parents( in the adoption relationship) or bioparents?Answer Question

I think maybe every person and situation is different. Because ours are international adoptions, we may never get the chance to know our children's birth families. However, I love them all. I hope my kids will love them, and be thankful for their sacrafices as the get older. Our birth moms are a very real part of who my kids are. Were it not for them, my beautiful babies would not have life. That is huge. So, if just for that and we never meet face to face, YES my kids have two sets of ancestry, and two mothers - equally real and both very necessary in my kids' lives.
