Is it possible to love somwone else's Pyppy?
I am frankly sick and tired of the question: “ Is it possible to love someone else’s child?” … Are feelings as to your own possible? Will your pulse grow when you see adopted kid just like when you’d see your own biological child? Will you miss the one that you didn’t give birth to? To answer these quite popular questions… let us switch the subject on puppies…
When we buy a puppy in the market or take it from our friend none of us applies to have lineal consanguinity with this creature. But already on your way home something starts happening in your heart, something moves and whines in the box, and becomes closer and closer to you moment by moment. And then each movement of the tail because of joy of seeing you adds some positive moments. And the rough tongue which touches your cheek ...., and overindulgence with a broom in a corner..., and growl on its own reflection in a puddle.... And behold in a very short time it's yours... It's absolutely yours. And the puddle on the carpet even though it upsets you a bit, but essentially does not influence your relation to this already remarkable for you creature.
Is it possible to love another’s puppy? For sure it was not born by you. And for certain it has no your blood in it…. It will never call you Daddy, and it will hardly take your last name….
Proceeding from this simple logic and from own experience absolutely frankly I declare. Love to a child you adopted is not simply possible - it is guaranteed.
