Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Several times I've been told that people with adopted kids are not mothers.

If you avert your eyes to the "virgin" post.  You will see several people telling OP she is not a mother because she adopted her biological sister. WTAF?????

If you ADOPTED someone, you are their PARENT.  

Yes, I adopted my sisters. I never knew them as my sisters, They have ALWAYS been my kids, and I have ALWAYS been their mom.  Anyone who tells me, my kids, or anyone else otherwise is a douche. 

/end rant.

I can't imagine telling an adopted mother that she isn't a mother. What a crazy way of thinking!

anyone can be a mother, it takes a special person to be someone's MOM.

People are just so insecure and black and white in their thinking.

I think thats very ignorant & uneducated on their part-there are many ways people become parents & i don't give one damn how someone came to be one as long as they are good to that child.the ignorance & stupid just hurt.

I could not agree more. A mom is a mom is a mom, and anyone who says otherwise is an idiot.

If anything I think adopted mothers are MORE of a mother than others. Anyone can fuck and make a baby. But it takes someone special, someone strong, someone deserving of the title "mother" to adopt.

 bs..ignore them. If you (and so) are permanent providers for a child, you are their parent. Me and dh have had my niece for 4 months now. She's pretty much become one of our kids and I don't even have any legal custody of her. Those comments pissed me off too on that other post.

I agree. Someone keeps saying that because the adopted child is biologically related, that it doesn't matter what courts say, they're not the same.
Too early for that level of stupidity.

This. I'm a guardian right now of a 9 year old. Have been for about 8 months and have no kids of my own. Children don't come with manuals and I need advice. I have every right to be on this site to get advice...
