When showing off what I believe to be a lovely design for this blog to family members I heard a comment I didn’t believe I would ever hear from my own family.
Then again, it is my family I’m discussing here.
Why, you ask?
Well, that’s a very good question one that I’m a puzzled about too.
I didn’t carry her, does that make her any less my child?
Wait, let’s back up. My parents adopted before actually having “their own.” A term I really hate. Adoption is not foreign in this family. I suppose I could understand if this comment came from outside the family.
Shortly after Zadey was born and home, I made a post regarding the views others have about adoption. What I never realized is that those views would be imposed by my very own family members.
It’s a shame, really.
