We did what is totally unusual in Africa - adopted. We are totally happy but I worry when he grows up and finds out. What will be the best way to tell him he is adopted and at what age? I had thought of never telling him but someone else could do so by mistake and this could be disastrous, help

I would tell him from the beginning. They have many books on families out there that can help it just be a normal part of his life. One way to talk about it is how he grew in another woman's 'belly', but grew in your heart... the fact that you CHOSE him can help to make him feel extra special.

And hopefully you will get several more responses from people who have more experience on this topic. This is just what I've heard and I believe. ;) ♥
