My hubby and I adopted his great neice when she was 8 months old, she went into foster care immediately at birth. She is turning 3 in December. Her mom and dad live in another state and city, mom has not seen her in one and a half years and it's been about a year since her dad seen her. Birth mom has no contact with her and dad makes an occasional phone call so she has no idea of who they are. She calls us mom and dad of course, my hubby and I are in our 50s. I believe that we should be honest and disclose as soon as she can understand, but others differ on that opinion. Are there adoptive parents or others who can share their experience?
