    I live in a middle class neighborhood and my neighbor to the east has 2 adopted kids from somewhere near Russia and the neighbor to the west has an adopted Guatemalan kid and two adopted kids from a crack whore. As they grow older, you can tell these kids are not as smart as the other kids in the hood. The strange thing is the parents seem to lack the parental gene as well, as if they were unable to conceive naturally for a reason.

    I wish your mom would have put you up for adoption. That way you would have lived a completely different life and probably would have never came to post on this message board.

    This goes to the argument of nature vs nurture

    She IS!

    ...and your argument is that adopted kids are slow, because of their upbringing while adoptive parents suck at it because of their genetics?

    No. I am saying that adopted kids, depending on their parents, often do not have high iq because their parents do not. Now not all adopted kids come from stupid stock.

    You really don't have a clue what you are talking about and painting a picture of adoption with a giant brush. There are a myriad of things that effect a child's development, intelligence and future success in the world.

    my 2 brothers weren't adopted.

    My sister and I were.

    all 4 of us went to college.

    The only doctor in the fambly was adopted.

    You do the math.
