I remember once when I was little, I told my mom I was going to adopt kids when I got older.
This posed a tricky situation for her because she wanted to dissuade me without looking like an arsehole (because who the hell is anti-adoption?).
She got quiet and said that I shouldn't take that seriously and that I shouldn't ever consider it because those kids aren't my own. There was contempt in what/how she said it... I can't describe it.
I know where she was coming from considering all she's been through and how tough it is to raise kids... but I want to know.
If you were to tell your parents that you wanted to adopt... how would they respond?
