The mother gave the young woman a side-look and said, "I treated you like my own."|
So tell me TQC, how are adopted children supposed to be treated by the parents who adopted them? Was the mother giving herself credit or something, like she had done a good deed? Or was she trying to say to the child, 'I loved you like my own'?
Honestly, it doesn't surprise me, in fact I pretty much expect it, that parents favor their biological children over their stepchildren and/or adopted children. But what was the point of the mother's comment?
Serious and non-serious answers.
