My adoptive mother has V.D. now and I must say it has been quite difficult and challenging, but an added difficulty is being adopted it does alter the family dynamics. I have always known she was not my "real" mother and she has 1 son from birth who very obviously she was closer to. However, a lot of the caring has fallen to me and I must say I feel a little resentful at times. Are there any others out there who are adopted and find themselves in a similar position?
