I am new to this group. I will be 56 in December and am the adoptive mother of a three year old. He has been in my care from birth. When my son and I are out somewhere, Walmart or the park or somewhere, often people will talk to my son and refer to me as his grandma. This doesn't bother me personally. I'm 56, I look like his grandma! What do you think the best way is for me to handle this from my son's point of view? He's too young to be bothered by it now but in a few years he will realize that I look and sometimes perhaps act differently from his friends' mothers. My husband is 60 and has similiar concerns.
