    Biological is your blood, adoptive is someone who wished to have you as their own and loves you very much, foster it depends they could be very abusive or very kind.

    The difference is simple. A biological parent is your blood meaning they're the people who gave you all you different genes. Meaning your real birth parents. An adoptive parent is someone who adopts you and takes you in as their own. And raises you up like a biological parent but their not your blood/birth parent. So they won't look like you. Also the birth parents of the child probably didn't want or couldn't take care of the child so they give it up for adoption so it could find a better home. Lastly, a foster parent is someone you takes care of you temporarily until you are adopted or until your old enough to live on your own. Like the other person said they can most of the time be loving good people but other times some of them are abusive. But it always depends. Hopefully this helps!! BTW if your feeling generous could I have a medal please!!
