Equality Despite Difference

Maybe the ultimate thing would be for adoptive parents to make no distinction separation or alike between raising their biological children and their adopted ones.

My mum, never made any difference between us the children she was given compared to the children that she never had. And I believe her. But even so there still is a significant difference betweeen parenthood by biology and parenthood from adoption. The first factor would be biology and race, second one would be the cultural aspect different culture with a different language there might be other traditions and so on.

What adoptive parents seems to lack, ignore or be unaware of is that it really doesn't matter how much they love and ache for their new family member given the fact that the child might be a transracial adoptee. He or she is almost certainly going to experience racism and prejudices and there's no protection against that and also a limited knowledge and sadly preparations too.
