Go straight to hell. Clearly, you don't know anything at all about what it's like to be adopted. It's not selfish to seek normalcy in your life. I remember wishing I just had one set of parents, instead of a second set who were riddled with guilt that they couldn't raise me, which they transferred to me. And thusly, I felt bad all the time when I was around them. Feeling sad because they were sad. It's o.k. to want to be like everyone else ,who have just two parents.
How can you discount what an ADOPTED person feels? If they feel that their adoptive parents were more equipped to do the job of raising them, then who are you to disagree?
Yes, I get that giving up your child is very mature and selfless. I get that there is a stigma against women who give up their children, as if that somehow makes them a bad person. But you shouldn't antagonize an adopted child for how THEY feel.
