ANSWER #4 of 23

I am a step father and a father - and I treat my step son as my own - however, I treat my daughter differently then my step-son for I believe a man can better protect himself then my daughter - its not so silly if you think about it - there are some step-parents that treat the step child better. The other thing is, if the parents ever divorce - that step-child is no longer your step-child - legally.

equal love

ANSWER #5 of 23

Absolutely not. Love between two people only comes from fluid transmission. This is why biological parents can love their children, because those children are literally a product of their own fluids (genes). In the world of romance, love is only achieved after partners share fluid with each other (kissing counts!). In the case of adoption, it's similar to buying a new video game; it's fun for a while, entertaining to explore and to gain an understanding, but at the end of the day if it breaks, gets stolen or dies (video games don't really die, they just break), then you just go out and get another.
Don't count on being able to love a child you adopt, it's simply not possible in human genetics.

As we answer the initial question, we should be able to speak our minds without retribution or name calling about other;s opinions. This is what creates solutions - opposition of what we believe. We dont have to like what is said, however, we should respect those that say it. Unless of course it is totally socialbly unexceptable.
