A long day of work! | Main | Is it time to discuss adoption again?

I'm not a Lawyer

or a law professor.

I am an adopted child - although more than grown up at 52 - and I am really fed up with the constant reference to the Roberts' adopted children.

If the MSM and politicians could only be sensitive to adopted children and simply refer to them as the children of Judge and Mrs. Roberts.

Believe me. Adopted children don't want to be pointed out by strangers as 'adopted'. And the parents who adopt those children love them every bit as much as any biological chld.

Judge and Mrs. Robert's children are beautiful, active little kids. They looked great in pastels for a fancy occassion when President Bush announced the nomination. Mrs. Roberts looked great, too.

In a family, it matters not if one is adopted or not - a daughter is a daughter and a son is a son.

Update: Michelle Malkin has a post with a lot emails from concerned adoptive parents - or as I prefer to say - parents - real parents - real moms and dads who are raising their real children. It's worth the read.
