Many parents and people may not like this write-up, but it is a real truth. And it is laid upon my heart to pen down may be because of only some few that are not happy about their life right now.
It is a normal thing if you may take it that way. “Blood is thicker than water,” they always jokingly say. Most times, truth evolves from jokes. There is an unseen tie that binds parents and their biological children; and God is the creator of this bond. That is the reason parents can go to any length when the issues concern their children – the biological ones. When it comes to their children that are non-biological, there is a limit to which they can go for them.
Many historical happenings had presented back-ups for this fact. Once upon a time, there was a particular family where they had only one female child. They later decided to adopt a male child, and they were happy that they had two children. Meanwhile, when it was time for them to go, their will revealed that of all their estates, 40% should go to their female child, 20% to the male child, and the remaining 40% to their church and charity.
Is this fair enough? My own personal reaction is that it is normal. And if this is applicable to you, please take it as normal. What about if you are declared as a non-biological child, and nothing is given to you? Though that would be a sheer wickedness, but some people will still justify it. Some parents would give their biological children first class education, and other children in the family second class. Thank God they even do it at all! I would not want to say, “Why did they adopt them in the first instance?”
