"The truth is, she doesn't have to choose"

OK, the conversation is between mom and stepmom, but doesn't it speak to us -- adoptive moms and birthmoms?

I've worked really hard to make sure my kids know that there is room in their lives for mom and birthmom, they don't have to choose. Zoe has definitely taken it to heart. Shortly after we came home from China with Maya, we were driving in the car while Zoe earnestly explained to her sister, "I have lots of moms -- a birth, a grand, a god, and a regular. And you have a birth, a foster, a grand, and a regular. You'll get a godmom when you're baptised." LOL! I'm regular!!!!
