People have been saying "oh she gets her auburn/red hair from *insert family members name here*"
Nope. That's not how it works.
Adoption makes us a family. Genetics do not- least of all fake genetics. Why does she have to get her red hair from anywhere? It's her red hair... yes, it's like her daddy's red beard... or her Papa great's hair... or whoever else. But she doesn't get it "from" them.
I'm not angry with these people for saying this. I just correct them. Someone told us "oh, you can say that she gets her hair from this family member". I just said "we're very open about the adoption."
What do you think, adoptive mamas? Anyone else? I know it bothers some adoptive mamas. I'm not really bothered by it, I just don't see the desire to make so much about genetics when genetics have no affect on our family.
