My mother couldnt have any more children after me so when I turned 15 she started adopting...some came as emergency placements that she eventually fell in love with, some had siblings that needed to be adopted also and by the time she was done I had 6 new siblings. My dad is a Correctional Officer and my mom is a SAHM...they arent getting any financial assistance for the children (that was for anyone who might think my mother and father were doing this for nefarious purposes)
Anyways my mom has this friend whom I have never liked (long story) who recently decided to divulge to the children that they were all adopted, my mom hit the roof! and I don't blame her...I don't think it was her place to tell them that, they didnt know yet....
How would you have handled this situation? Would you be upset? Do you think she was right to tell my brothers and sister?
I think that she was WAY out of line and should be ashamed of herself! That was NOT her place and she would no longer be a "friend" of mine.
