Michele Pierce has worked in the field of education and educational publishing for over 25 years as a teacher, editor and writer. She holds a master's degree in Education from Harvard. Michele enjoys being a wife and mother, practicing yoga, skiing, reading, and walking her new baby -- a 90lb. Bernese Mountain Dog named Boots. She writes: “It must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own.” Groan. A familiar wave of disappointment rushes over me. “When will they get it right?” This tagline from a soon-to-be-released “slasher” movie is a stinging example of how the media continues to drive the myth that parents can’t love a child they adopted as much as a biological one.
