My Hubby and I have always talked about adoption, but my concern is that I would treat the adopted child differently than I would my biological child. I'd love to hear what other Moms of biological children and adopted children have to say. No bashing please. Being an adoptive parent is a huge decision, and I want to be as prepared as possible.
Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome! I'm a foster and foster to adopt and biological mother. I can say that I've had kids in my house that I have not felt the same about as I feel about my biological children. I loved them, but it wasn't the same. More like I love my best friend's child, you know? However, the first day I met my soon to be adopted son, I felt nothing but complete unconditional love for him. I told my best friend that I had met my son that day. I believe our children find us. I have never felt less bonded with my soon to adopted son than I do with my three biological children (one who lives in heaven).
I have two biological boys and then we adopted twin girls who are now 3 months old. I honestly find no difference in how I love my adopted girls compared to my biological boys. The girls belong in our family and we love them just as much as our boys. I don't know what we'd do without the girls in our family.
