“Many people think that you can never love an adoptive child the same way you love a child who comes through your body.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK? (Do leave your opinion in the form of a comment on this page)
Well, according to me, the answer is ‘Yes, there will mostly certainly be a difference’. However, the difference is limited to the fact that the child was not conceived in your womb and you did not feel the physical pain and anxiety that is a part and parcel of labor and childbirth.
Besides these aspects of having a child, adoptive parents too go through the apprehension and uncertainties that are faced by an expectant couple. The waiting period seems like a pregnancy with no physical changes. As the date for the arrival of the baby nears, adoptive parents too, face the nesting urge. The fears revolving around being able to be a good parent, seeing the child for the first time, diaper changes and sleepless nights also set in.
