Adoption Questions

At Church on Mother’s Day my 16-year-old son leaned over to me and said, “I wonder if I love you the same as I would my REAL mother?”  He really wants to know what it feels like to love his actual mother.
It wasn’t mean, it didn’t hurt my feelings.  I have been wondering the same thing in reverse.
Do I love my children the same as I would if they were biological? 
I can’t answer that because I don’t have any “biological” children.  I love my children. 
Is it the same type of love that mothers have who actually give birth?  I don’t know.  I probably will never know.  It is a question that I can’t answer - but a valid (and hard) question nonetheless.

My son made this for me on Mother's Day. Love him!

  1. Aww, what a sweet breakfast!

    It's so crazy that I stumbled upon your blog because my husband and I have begun to talk quite seriously about adopting and now I find myself reading about your beautiful family. Very inspiring! :)
