Hi everyone, I have a few questions. My husband and I are going thru the foster-adoption process. Since it was foster care first, we never in a million years thought that we would end up with newborns that actually look like us. We were prepared for the exact opposite.
Having said that, we never considered how we would let them know they were adopted...just figured they would be old enough to be aware of the circumstances. So...that's my question: How did you let them know they were adopted? We believe in letting them know from birth but do you just start reading books about adoption and talking about it and then they finally ask? Please tell me your experiences, what worked and what didn't? Thanks! Renee
