We did Foster Parenting and got our daughter when she was 4 months- She does not remember her birth mom since she was and still is in and out of jail. We adopted her eventually once case plan never was worked-
Our daughter is biracial and my husband and I both are white so its obvious we are not the birth parents... She has made comments in the past year about her skin color and ours. She sees a difference BUT has never ask why- We always tell her what BEAUTIFUL skin tone she has. Most would die for her color... seriously.
Anywho... She is 5 almost 6 about to enter 1st grade. I think MY fear is either a student or Adult making a comment about her being adopted. I dont want her coming home and asking I would rather her know and not finding out that way. My husband thinks she is too young. I dont know what to do.
At what age is a good age?
When you do discuss this, exactly what should they know or should you tell?
Our daughter asks A LOT of questions... I really dont want her asking about the birth mom and I KNOW she is too young to get into the deal of her beinga drug addict, ect. So any suggestions on IF WE SHOULD do this or not- and if we should how to handle it is appreciated.
