What are some ways I could speak to my kids about my oldest child who was adopted 10 years ago?

I still have contact with him, and he has actually come to see me and stay with me several times. I had him at 16 and he was adopted by a family member. My kids are getting older and asking why big brother doesn't live with us. I want to be honest, but only tell them a little at a time, so they can process it. Will they hate me? I have a lot of feelings of guilt and failure that I don't want to project onto my kids. I am just as bonded with him as the other kids and want them to know that. Any ideas on how to do this would be wonderful.

  • be honest. you were too young when you had him you couldnot take care of him the way you wanted to so you let ----------- raise him. you love him very much but ciuldn't take care of him as well as ---------- so she is his mother also. this is a good way to express how premarital sex can affect you life for ever.
