comment How should a stepfather respond to “You are not my Father!”?
I remember coming across an advice column in which the man writing in had given up his son for adoption as a baby several decades earlier, back when his life was messed up. The man had become wealthy later in life and wanted to do whatever he could to put right this part of his life. He asked very respectfully and I remember the advice was to offer help, just don't expect to be called Dad. Because "somebody else did that job".

can your question say a bit more about why you're considering adoption? perhaps you can't have any more children naturally, or you wish to help another child, or some other specific reason. motivations for adopting vary widely and a detailed answer will depend at least partly on your motivation
