Kirk Cameron says that he often forgets ‘who’s adopted and who’s not’

Although he and his partner have two biological children, this actor explained that he doesn’t feel like they treat the kids any differently. In fact, he oftentimes forgets “who’s adopted and who’s not.”

“Adoption is so special. My adopted kids know that they’re in our family because we wanted them to be in our family. We chose them. That’s something special that every adopted child can know. They didn’t have to be adopted by their parents. They really wanted them,” Kirk Cameron said during an interview with People Magazine.

“They’re just my kids. Literally, I forget who’s adopted and who’s not. It really doesn’t seem like that. They’re my kids, I’m their dad and Chelsea’s their mom,” he continued. “It’s just a great, wonderful way to not only have a family yourself but meet a real need in the lives of so many of these orphans.”

Episodes of Growing Pains are available for streaming on Amazon. Some episodes of Full House, including those featuring Kirk Cameron and Candace Cameron Bure are available for streaming on Hulu.
