4 Reasons A Child’s Adoption Story Should Never Be A Secret

Be fair and share, there are many reasons for adoption and they are all good for the child.

Meghan Rivard November 16, 2016

A child’s adoption story should include a link to his/her biological background and heritage. That knowledge is important because it will be a factor in who they are today and who they will be in the future. It is human nature for people to want to know their genealogy and your adopted child is no different. Be fair and share, there are many reasons for adoption and they are all good for the child. I believe everyone should know their adoption story from their birth to their placement with you. It should always be an open dialogue, so that at any age your adopted child will not be uncomfortable discussing her/his feelings.
