If it were your child's half sibling.......

If your child had a half sibling very close to the same age as them that you knew had been put up for adoption, would you be curious to see pictures of the child, or be tempted to try and find the adoptive parents online (facebook, myspace, etc) just so you could see the child?

I know, kind of a weird question...

  • I meant "see" pictures, not actually ever talk to the adoptive parents or anything. -OP

  • Yep, I'd be really tempted but that could lead to so many more temptations.

  • Yes I have. My daughter has three siblings in adoptive homes and about 6 more on her biodads side of the family. I found his myspace and see pictures of them. His girlfriend posts them to him because he's in jail. Nice isn't it? That you can do myspace in jail?

  • Hey if they put enough personal identification on the web that you can find a picture than that's their problem. go for it.

  • I would be curious to see what my child's half-sibling looked like and how they were doing.

  • OP here. I didn't know you could myspace in jail. :/ That's crazy. This is actually about my daughter's half brother. When I met her dad, he lied about a lot of things (including girl that was about 5 months pregnant by him)... He's not involved in our life but I often wonder about the little boy and i'd love to see pics of him. I think he lives in California and we live in alabama so it's not like I'd go door knocking or anything. lol Just really curious. Thanks ladies for making me not feel like a crazy person. :)

  • I would. Don't you think your child would want to know their sibling? Maybe not now but when older?
