I'm just wondering...aside from genetic, health, or race issues, why do people feel the need to tell a child (specifically a child they have had since birth) that they are adopted!
UPDATE!!! Thank you to all of you for NOT answering the question at all!!! I said nothing about lying to your child, or faking like you gave birth to them or any other such nonsense!!! HAHAHAHAHA......hilarious that so many of you have such thin skin, if the question was so ridiculous you shouldn't have answered!!!! The question was WHY, not all these morality about "omg, how can you form a relationship built on lies!!" Give me a break, no I am not adopted, but I've known so many people that are and knowing they are adopted hasn't always been the positive fairytale of truth many of you described!! Aside from the fact that I really was asking because i have a friend who adopted a little girl (at 2 who is now 13) and you would think after all these years you would not have to keep introducing her as "my adopted daughter"...it is not making the little girl feel special (we chose you BS) and i don't think it is healthy, at what point is the child just your son or your daughter?!!!!Answer Question

Truth & trust. I would have been very shocked & a little upset if my parents never told me.
