All 4 of my parents are *real*.
One thing that tires me out is when people say “I’M the Real parent, not them!”.
It is not up to the parents to decide who the *real* parents are, it is up to the adoptee.
As far as I am concerned, I have 2 *real* mothers and 2 *real* fathers - it is my own decision to decide who my *real* parents are, it is not my parents decision to decide for me. That is my own personal feeling and only reflects my own feelings. I know other adoptees feel different (eg some only consider APs their *real* parents, some only consider BPs their *real* parents) and that is their reality.
