I am going to address my son's adoption as a blessing, and that his birthmom loved him so much, but wanted to give him a great life, even if it meant she could not give to him herself. One thing we do to talk about the goodness of his adoption, is to celebrate what we call "Gotcha Day", which is the day we were able to bring him home. He enjoys being able to celebrate the fact that he is a part of our family, but knows he was loved by his birth family too. On Gotcha Day, he gets a small present to open. It is great opportunity to talk to him about adoption.
