No offense but when your child turns 18 they can do it without you. Telling them until 21 is a bit of a stretch. What you mean is at 21 they would have your blessing but not before then. Really, in this age of technology they can be a tween and hook up with siblings. If they have friends who have computers (and who doesn't?) then they can begin their search. The real question is do you help them or not? The earlier the better. My son is three and if his siblings, through his birth mother, had any interest in connecting with my child then I would assess if it was the right time or not. And by right time I mostly mean as long as that sibling is mentally/emotionally healthy and appropriate - absolutely. It would be my job to facilitate at first but later they could continue. It all would be played by ear. But in my opinion: the sooner the better. As long as it does not jepordize us as his parents.
