^I was thinking that same thing. Those kind of feelings aren't that uncommon for parents even when there are just, say, the biological ones there. There can be jealousy or hurt when the kid chooses/prefers (or seems to) the other one. Even more common, or at least more commonly talked about when there are the bioparents and their new partners etc. So those kind of feelings are understandable, and they don't need to be rational. But I do think it is the bio/social parents responsibility to get over their own ego and deal with it; to put the child first and realise that the feeling isn't a fact, and that it's in the end a good thing that the child has a supportive, comfortable person in their life no matter who it is. The more the better.
