Looking back we just had our heads in the clouds with so much going on in the little ones' minds that we were completely unaware of. (1767, 2012) While I now believe that being an adopted person necessarily always carries with it some degree of loss and grief, and a need to come to terms with things that biological children don't need to, I believe it can, on balance, be a very positive life experience, leading to a fully realised and successful adult life.

Added by Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 20, § 1, eff. When Paul speaks of the Spirit of sonship in Galatians 4, he is referencing the Gentiles’ experience when receiving salvation [51]. Moreover, the father may be unaware of the mother's pregnancy, or he may know of the birth but have played no active role in either supporting the child or developing a social relationship with it. Schnitzer's position is absolute: He is the sole and exclusive parent. Single Parent?’ I say. “Hey fine, as long as it works for the child and the family is responsible.” My big stand is this: Every child deserves a home and love.
