Give yourself time. Work on yourself to love all your kids equally. Don’t be harsh on yourself. Because even in families with biological children, in some situations parents do feel more love for one child vis-à-vis the other. But the situation is more sensitive if one of the children involved is adopted. Work harder on yourself to correct this because you don’t want it to assume larger proportions when the children grow up and begin to feel this difference in love. Know that it was your conscious decision to adopt whether you had a biological child earlier or later. It would be unfair to bring a child into your life and not love her as your flesh-and-blood, whether you have another biological child or not.
