From personal experience - there is NO difference!

As the father of two adopted children, I know that both my wife and I could not possibly love them any more than we do and have always loved them. In addition, our families have never treated our children any differently from the other kids in the family.

Adoptied children as just as much loved as others

Adopted children are just as much loved as birth-children. I just completed an adoption for a family. The family was white, the child was African-American and they fought to adopt this child. They have 4 other foster children (all African American) and it is their hope to be able to adopt all of them. By the way, I and they live on the buckle of the Bible Belt - love knows no colors!

How Grandma S. felt

When we adopted our daughter in 1977 my mother-in-law was very adamant that we never tell her she is adopted. We didn't feel that way and told her from day one, "You are our beautiful, adopted baby". When our daughter was a toddler she was in the hospital for breathing issues and Grandma S.'s comment to my husband was, "I sure hope she didn't inherit your breathing problems." She sure forgot quickly that ours was the chosen one. Through- out her life what ever she did for one grandchild she did for the other On a side topic - when our daughter was 21 she decided to find her biological parents. Using an adoption site on AOL she found her biological mother within a few days, met her the same week, and had a "relationship" with her for less than a year. The woman was working hard to get our daughter to change her religion. It seems we had done our part in raising her as our daughter was adamantly against it. She is still in contact with her biological dad and strangely enough, with her biological mom's ex husband. Be Careful When Looking - You May Not Find What You Want To Find. Another side topic, but connected - If you are looking for a GREAT book to read to toddlers about adoption is The Chosen Baby.
