I didn’t get him

I’m so amazed by a thing. A man wrote that he and his mother had a talk about this documentary and the mother said that she didn’t get him when she adopted him. She borrowed him. When you borrow things you treat it good, you’re very careful and you know deeply inside that it isn’t yours. That is what many adoptive parents need to compare it with because some people just treat their children like they don’t have a background. They say that they will protect their children but you don’t protect them if you keep them from the truth.  To be a adoptive parent isn’t about loving someone that isn’t yours, it is so much more. You need to love the child and treat the child like it was yours but you always need to know and think that someday the child want to know where the child comes from, where it comes from and why the child is where it is. You’ll be there as a parent to support comfort the child whether it is sad or very happy. The son/daughter will love you if they know you’re honest, you’ll be there for the child even though the child now is 20 and has grown up. I don’t write it because I’m a parent. I write this because I know how I as an adoptee want to be treated
