How did you introduce your child to their newly adopted sibling? How did it go? Was it hard for them to understand what was happening at first?
Yeah, it's little bit confusing for the first time. But after that it's okey and everyone accept this matter.

Would think some of that would depend on the age of the children involved. Some too young to understand may be confused a little, but if they have friends they are used to playing with, it is not that different to them and if children are old enough to understand foster care and adoption then it is really a matter of getting to know a new sibling just as one would get to know any friend, the only difference is they don’t have to go home and your Mommy is now their Mommy too, so sharing is important concept in dealing with that. I grew up having aunts and uncles all different ages and some did not stay long at Grammy’s and some did. I was more confused when fosters who were grown decided to move out and start their own families and I hardly ever saw them if they moved too far away.

It will depend on how the child is brought up and his age when you adopt. Perhaps, you will need an intro for it. I'm sure that he or she will understand the situation.
