Well she's still adopted which means she isn't actually the daughter of her parents. Legally yes but biologically no and there's absolutely NOTHING she can do about that. She will never have that connection with them. She will always be the adopted kid if the parents have a real child. It just isn't the same.

After looking at the replies anon has made I can see what he's talking about. A bond within a healthy family that is all biologically related is likely to be stronger then a bond within a healthy adoptive family. That's what anon is trying to say, but I don't particularly agree with it. An adoptive family is no different then a biological family, other then the aspect that they aren't related. The love is still the same, the bond is still the same, and if the parents see the child as their own child, sometimes even with the mindset that the child was meant to be their's, then the family will be exactly the same as a biologically related family.

How so?
User avatar #38 to #2 - iridium (08/06/2013) [-]
This is retarded. So you're saying a mother who murders her biological daughter is more of a mother than one who loves her adopted daughter.

**** you. It is the same.
#47 to #38 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
You see now you're going to an extreme. I'm talking about a normal family with a child and a normal adoptive family. It isn't the same.

Love is not an emotion that carries through blood.

The ONLY differences. and I mean ONLY. differences. Is the genetic material and the uterus where they grew as a fetus. Neither of which have anything to do with raising a child as a parent.
#81 to #53 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
Clearly you're not a mother then, are you. Speak to some women and you'll realise that having a baby come from your very body is something they will value more than a child they can essentially just get from somebody else. While I understand that a biological connection doesn't always mean the parent/child connection will be perfect, it definitely has a greater chance of being stronger.

#89 to #81 - iridium (08/06/2013) [-]
So you think that because something plopped out her vagina that it automatically makes it better.

You wanna talk chance? Most parents don't adopt children without the intent to raise them just as their own child. Otherwise, why go through the work? Conversely, there are a lot of mothers who have unwanted children because of accidents relating to contraception and general lack of safe practice.

I may not be a mother, but I understand the concept of a "mother's love" and what it means. My stepmother treats and loves me just like her own son and has for many years. As has my biological mother. As does my Sister to her son. But I also live in a family where my twin cousins are raised by their biological grandparents because their daughter didn't raise them like a real mother. She didn't care, nor did her boyfriend (their father). She used them to gain attention for herself and didn't take care of them on her own at all, so they had to step in. As far as everyone in my family is concerned, their real parents are my aunt and uncle, their grandparents. My mom's good friend has adopted both of his daughters from China. They aren't simply his (and his wife's) "adopted" daughters. They are their daughters.

Greater chance my ass. You're so full of **** that it's pouring out of your fingernails and onto your keyboard.
#102 to #89 - anon (08/07/2013) [-]
For the record, you take one example of how some parents didn't take care of their kids and use this to somehow prove that a biological connection means nothing.

Srs lol is srs.
#101 to #89 - anon (08/07/2013) [-]
1. I never said it was better (how the hell do you expect to define that anyway), I simply said that more women would consider the biological bond to be greater and be "closer" to their own child.
2. I'm well aware of the fact that people who adopt don't do so on a whim, and that many familes with adopted children can do damn well.
3. I'm a different anon, you ******* idiot. I'm not thumbing you down because I couldn't care less about how many thumbs you get.

Seriously, if you're going to argue the case that a biological connection has no meaning whatsoever, get some ******* facts first, otherwise I'm going to group you with all the other assburgers ridden teenagers on here.

And by the way, your constant thumbing down of everyone you disagree with has not gone unnoticed.
#58 to #53 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
Ok obviously i'm doing a bad job explaining what i'm trying to say. I apologize for that and it's my fault. I'm not trying to imply that the parents don't love their adopted child because they do obviously, all i'm saying is it isn't the same. There is still a **** load of love.
User avatar #68 to #58 - mizory (08/06/2013) [-]
Just because some people aren't biologically the same doesn't mean they aren't family. My mom's friend is Jewish and her and her husband adopted 2 Chinese girls and I see no difference when the girls call them "mom" and "dad" Maybe you have your own perspective but I still see no difference

as someone who is adopted, i just want to say what you just said is complete ******** and don't act like you know what your talking about
#29 to #24 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
I'm just saying it isn't the same... you don't have your actual parents.
User avatar #79 to #29 - iridium (08/06/2013) [-]
Being biologically related doesn't automatically make you "family". They are his real parents and you're an ignorant twat.
User avatar #36 to #29 - deescalation (08/06/2013) [-]
We adopted my little sister from China when she was 1. She never knew her real parents, and never will. She doesn't get treated any differently than the rest of our family and there's never been any divide or difference there. You're full of **** and you don't know what you're talking about
#52 to #36 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
It just isn't the exact same thing as having a real sister and not an adopted one. Both are fine, i'm not **** talking adopted kids, i'm just saying it isn't the same.
User avatar #72 to #52 - deescalation (08/06/2013) [-]
It is exactly the same you stupid twat
User avatar #30 to #29 - skinless (08/06/2013) [-]
are you adopted?
#48 to #30 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
I am not.
User avatar #50 to #48 - skinless (08/06/2013) [-]
then don't act like you know what its like to be adopted and make these ******** assumptions, i know my parents love me and i love them.
#56 to #50 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
Oh no you're completely misunderstanding me. I am not saying that the parents don't love their adopted kid, they do very much. All i'm saying is it isn't the same.
User avatar #25 to #24 - holycrapimacupcake (08/06/2013) [-]
Exactly, hell I'm adopted, I have no desire to meet by bio's, but hell I ******* love my adoptive parents.
#28 to #25 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
It still isn't the same as living with your real parents. They love you, but you aren't biologically related to them, just legally and that simply is not the same.
User avatar #31 to #28 - holycrapimacupcake (08/06/2013) [-]
As far as I'm concerned my bio's lost their chance when my mother looked at me and said," **** it, I don;t want this kid." They're just strangers to me, my adopted parents are my real parents, they raised me and took care of my while my bio's were out destroying their lives.
#62 to #31 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
It just isn't the same connection... there's love nonetheless but yeah.

Way I figure it, family is family, it doesn;t matter if you're related to them or not.

im using the word edgy a lot lately. because of people like this who are so damn edgy.
#18 to #9 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
I'm just being honest... it isn't the same as having a real child. They'll always be the adopted kid,
#106 to #18 - ddylann (08/07/2013) [-]
the parents can still love the child just as if they had them personally
User avatar #23 to #18 - nesquik (08/06/2013) [-]
But what if you're adopted and no one ever tells you about it? Then you'd be just as happy as someone who isn't adopted. There would be no changes, at all.

>implying a biological bond is more important than an emotional one
i'd rather be in a family that loves me but isn't blood-related to me than an angry dysfunctional yet biologically related bunch of assholes.

Why does it have to be such an extreme? A normal family compared to a normal family who adopted a kid.
User avatar #37 to #20 - versatilefaerie (08/06/2013) [-]
A blood relation doesn't really matter, just means if you need an organ that they would be the first people you ask. What matters is the emotional bond you create with others, it doesn't matter if they are blood related or not.
#44 to #37 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
It's still better to have 2 biological parents compared to 2 adoptive parents.
User avatar #54 to #44 - versatilefaerie (08/06/2013) [-]
How is it better? Can you explain it?

Even at that point, why the hell should a biological bond matter?
If you could give me any real downsides to not being biologically related, I'd agree with you.
#42 to #22 - anon (08/06/2013) [-]
Because it just isn't the same... you're a seperate person living in the same house with 1 or 2 adults instead of a SON or DAUGHTER living with your PARENTS. It's different than having real actual parents.

You just keep digging further and further with your ignorance.

And you don't even have the balls to log in and do it.
