    But this will hardly be the end of it. No one invents reasons to play the victim card like the gay community. I swear, they're convinced their ancestors were slaves, too.
    do you look around these threads have you seen some of the assholes they have to deal with?

It takes a different level of understanding and requires a time allowance than with biological kids. Your kids had to get to know you, and trust you, to depend on you. Biological kids don't even think about it unless their parents are idiots.
    I've seen it firsthand with my boys. They have 3 older sisters that are in an adoptive home with a male/female couple that have their own two biological daughters. It disgusts me when we go to their house. The two biological daughters have the best of everything. The three adopted girls are constantly told that "this is what the money the state gives us will provide for you". We met them at Disneyland. The two biological daughters got stuff that the others didn't...to the point, that I finally had enough and went and bought them stuff to make up for it.

I've also seen many adoptive parents who love their adoptive children every bit as much as their biological ones. It saddens me to think that an adoptive children would ever be in a home where they might sense that they are valued less because they are not biological. My children know that "family" does not = blood and know their true value.
    Geez, dude, can you read? Did I ever say I love my biological kids more? If you don't think adopted kids require special considerations initially and along the way, then God help your kids.

    I don't have to over-explain, and re-explain, this much with my wife. LOL

    or get together with like minded people and expose why that kind of discrimination has no rational or legal basis.

    Gay marriage, maybe. But that wasn't the Berlin Wall you guys made it out to be. It's more under the category of "Seriously?" than anything.

    But if you're expecting it to be just as normal as traditional marriage, you're living in a dream. It won't because it simply isn't, and cant be.

    I'm glad your kids are loved and cared for. But I also think they've got hurdles ahead with their own relationships that they can't understand or contemplate right now. And if you take that challenge on like a gay-marriage political battle, you'll all suffer for it and it won't end well. You wave that gay flag in the face of everything and everyone who challenges or makes judgments your kids' way, and you'll do them a great disservice.

    Because it ain't about you anymore when you have kids.

    .
    I'm not worried about it. Kids these days are much more open than their parents generation. The kids/parents we encounter in school and soccer games don't even bat an eye. I'm not naive enough to believe that they aren't going to encounter some ass hole one day that is going to make an issue of things for them, but they will be strong enough to know how to deal with people like that.
    And by the way....I'm not a big political activist. I don't fly a gay flag...but I don't hide or pretend that we are something different than what we are. I have come to realize that the vast majority of people in America are good people, who really don't care who you love or marry. Most people I encounter, judge me, my husband and our family on the content of our character, not our sexual organs. We are friends with practically every home on our block and everyone is accepting of us and its never been the slightest issue.

    And believe me....I know it isn't about me anymore.....my life has gone from being almost all about me and my work, to being almost solely about my three kids.

    I hope I am wrong...and I know you didn't SAY it...but it certainly comes across that way, even subtley. I believe that you say that you don't love them any more...I just hope that you really don't.

    I've got to call BS on that, or at least those are the worst adoptive parents I've ever heard of. If anything, the tendency is to overcompensate for the adopted kids, something we are really careful not to do. It's natural to feel the need to because you want them to feel your love more to reassure them since they don't look like you. But you can't or you inadvertently call attention to it.

    The same with your kids relationship to each other. You've got to let it develop without intervening. You can't force it.

    And I've got to ask, why did you split the kids from their sisters? That bond needs to remain. Kids are not draft picks.
