Things You Should And Shouldn't Say To An Adoptive Family
17. "I hope she grows up thankful for being adopted!"
Adopted children are not required to be thankful for our love. Just like biological children, they owe us nothing. They will push our limits as children, break our hearts as teenagers, and sympathize with us as adults because that is the circle of life. We get as much from our children as they get from us, no thanks required.
