I wasn't sure where to put it, so I put it here. My two daughters PastryChef (I'll call her easy child) and Jumper talked to me at the same time about living as an adoptee. I had the speaker phone on so we could all relax and talk. Both girls vehemently insisted that it is much easier to be adopted if you have adopted siblings, especially other children who look like they do. Both said it would have been very hard to have been the only adopted child in the family, no matter how well we treated them. I don't know if all adopted children would agree, but I wonder if this isn't a common mindset amongst adopted children. Anyhow, just putting it out there.
