I cannot stand people like the OP of the post about how many kids you have. I have adopted and biological children. There is absolutely NO difference between them other than I didn't have to give birth to my adopted children. I feel the same overwhelming feeling of love and protectiveness with each of my children.

Yep. Agreed. Although I am raising two of my nephews and have since they were born so I get alot more of that shit from my family. They are soo young still that I have always been mom and when they get older I will tell them the truth as to how they came to be but they don't need any comments from other idiots yet.

There's a post asking how many kids you have and the OP said we shouldn't include adopted, foster, or step-kids.

That's odd.  Perhaps she should have said how many times have you given birth.  Kids come to parents in all different ways.  You're right, your adopted kids are your kids.

I agree a million times...giving birth is not what makes one a mother..being a mother makes you a mother!! One of the best mothers I could have ever had the honor to meet was unable to conceive.

That would've been much less offensive if she had. But the way she worded it made it as if my adopted kids didn't count.
