Do you feel like less of a mother because your children are adopted? Keri: Absolutely not - I wanted to be a mom so bad that I didn't not - I really strongly felt that I didn't have to conceive or give birth to a child to be a mother and I know that when they place my daughter and my son in my arms, they were created for us. They were created for me and I look at them, although they look nothing like us, and I look at my daughter, I think she looks just like me and her mannerisms and everything are just like me and there is no difference. When people asked me, how come you didn't have children of your own, I say, these are my children. These are my children of my own and what they are really getting at is how come you didn't conceive and I just say, it's because this was the path that we chose to take to have our family. I've asked a couple of people, if there is any difference between conceiving a child and giving birth, versus adaption and I have a friend that has seven children. She gave birth to five. The last two she adopted, she said there is absolutely no difference.
