When we were in the process of adopting our daughter, my son was 5 & half. He understood that it was the only way we could have another child. When he asked me if he was adopted, I truthfully answered yes. (Pyschologist & his dr advised us to be honest, should he ask and preferable before he reaches senior primary.) But @ times, I wonder if I made the right decision, bcos it was a rollercoaster year thereafter and I know he harbours a lot of frustration & anger. My daughter is almost 5 and Im not sure if I want to tell her when shes young. What in your experience is the appropriate age? I also dont want to lie to my children !
