Although I agree with part of this--and I understand he was adopted at age 5 from foster care, but I have some issues with the reporting of it. First, why is his mother called his "a mom" for "adoptive mother" and not mother--unless that is something they worked out and his "adoptive father" is just his "father"?
I don't consider myself an "adoptive mother" or my child to be an "adopted child." Rather I am her mother and she is my child. She also has a biological mother and a foster mother and we created our family through adoption, but I am very careful of the labels we use in our home. I wish the writer of this article had been as sensitive.
