I’ve been wanting to say this for a while, but I don’t want to upset anyone in particular but I need people to know how upsetting it is to hear.
I have an adopted child. He is my son. I also have two biological daughters. They are my daughters. I have one son and two daughters. I do not have two of my own plus an adopted child. I have three children.
I don’t know if people realise quite how hurtful it is for me to hear this, and thankfully my children are too young at present to hear this, but I don’t want them feeling different from each other. They are siblings. I am their mother.
I have heard everything from ‘I bet it’s nice to have real children too’, to ‘Do you love the boy as much as he’s not yours?’ Honestly, you wouldn’t believe the things people can say.
Please understand, it’s your ignorance and you should really sit back and think before you speak.
