I'm finding the storyline involving B&B's Taylor, Brooke and baby Jack rather upsetting to watch — but not because I necessarily feel for either woman. It's just that the idea that Jack won't bond with Taylor simply because she's not his biological mother is insulting to anyone who's ever been adopted. Plus, he was still in her womb for nine months! This storyline would have much more impact had Jack been raised with Brooke for a few years and was then introduced into Taylor's life or vice versa (ala Tommy on OLTL who was with Marcie and Michael for a couple of years before being sent to live with Blair). Family is important, but a true family isn't merely built upon DNA.
