"[T]wo of this kid's close friends are Chinese sisters who were adopted by an American couple...does he talk to them like this?"

Very possibly he does. Or he has. Or he will. Frederick obviously possesses a strong opinion on this subject, and I'd be surprised if he confined his expression of it only to you. It sounds like maybe one of his parents need to have a conversation with him about this topic.

And for what it's worth to the Fredericks of the world: I've got two kids--one biological, one adopted. Neither child looks anything like me. But not only is my adopted daughter mine, my biological son is really mine, too.

Thanks, Tracy. You're right about Frederick needing a conversation about this with one of his parents. I've been looking for an appropriate time/place to talk to his Frederick's mom about this. I'll post about it if/when I do.
