My Daughter Jade is an amazingly intelligent three year old. We adopted Jade through CPS. She is my biological niece, but has been my daughter since she was five months old. She had a hard time when she was with her biologicals. Many things were done/not done that just created a bad environment. When Approached by the state, there was no question, she was ours. I love this little girl more than Life itself. Now that she is getting older she "remembers"things from when she was an infant...things that have never been spoken of, and she has terrible dreams that cause many a sleepless night. Recently we ran into some family of the biological father, and they commenced to telling jade that they were her family, and all it did was confuse her. To add to it, her biological mother is pregnant again. When is the right time to tell Jade her past? and how? My heart breaks everytime i think of having to explain this to her. any suggestions on easing the pain? Any tips on when and how to do it?
